Green Dot Money Pak

After hearing from several customers and visitors of Today-Liquidation.com, it seems that the Green Dot MoneyPak is a part of the problem. I’m usually not one to take sides, but the Green Dot MoneyPak seems to benefit the merchants far more than the buyers.

Based on reviews and information I’ve read about the MoneyPak, I recommend ONLY using it with the list of partners that accept MoneyPak. Most horror stories seem to surround merchants who are not directly affiliated with Green Dot MoneyPak.

I can’t find any benefit to buying a MoneyPak versus other payment methods. Credit cards have buyer protection, and even PayPal has a chargeback policy that favors the purchaser. (hence why some businesses only accept MoneyPak instead of taking credit cards or PayPal)

If you’ve had a good experience with a Green Dot MoneyPak, I’d love to hear from you. And if you think MoneyPak is a scam or have a horror story to share, please leave a comment and help spread the word.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is aware of scammers using GreenDot MoneyPaks to steal your money. Here’s an excerpt of an article about it on the BBB website. (Read the full article on the BBB website.)

The BBB says the public should be very cautious when using a Green Dot MoneyPak to pay an unfamiliar company or individual. Anyone who requires an upfront payment with a Green Dot MoneyPak is very possibly operating a scam.

Nationally, BBBs have received numerous complaints from consumers who say they were scammed by fake companies requiring online payments through Green Dot MoneyPaks.

I also found the BBB site for Green Dot Corporation in Monrovia, California. (Los Angeles BBB) Follow this link to learn more about Green Dot or to file a complaint. Somehow they still have an A+ rating, even though they have an average of 1-star rating by 68 users and have nearly 914 complaints filed. (as of 5/16/2011) *If we get them over 1,000 complaints, maybe they’ll finally lose their A+ status?

What is Today-Liquidation.com?

A new site popped up on my radar this week, called Today-Liquidation.com. There are a lot of people wondering if they are legit or if they are a scam. Their site says they sell general products online “at wholesale prices”. [The remainder of this post has been rewritten after finding new information about this “company”.]

It appears they’re using scammy payment terms to steal your money. In my opinion, you should stay away from Today-Liquidation.com and stay away from the GreenDot MoneyPak. If you managed to pay via credit card, try to get a refund as soon as possible. If you used a GreenDot MoneyPak, beat up GreenDot until they return your money. Otherwise, see below for a link to their Better Business Bureau information. File complaints relentlessly until they listen.

If you’ve done business with this company or know anything about them, please let us know how it went. Has anyone received products from Today-Liquidation???

Buyer Beware!
Based on the comments below, it looks like this might not be a company you want to buy from. One reason is that they only accept Green Dot Money Pak for payment. This is a very difficult payment type for the buyer (you) to get a refund from. Another, is that the contact information doesn’t seem to check out, and the links to their social media profiles simply point to the home pages of those sites. (Twitter, Facebook, etc…) Read some of the comments below and be sure to do some additional research if you still intend to purchase from them.
