Achieve Card committing fraud?

Achieve Card committing fraud?

AchieveCard - Better Business Bureau rating C-. Achieve Card originally operated as a DBA of Find Your Customers, Inc. July 2010 the principals of Find Your Customers, Inc established a new corporation Achieve Financial Services DBA Achieve Card. Alternate business name, Achieve Financial Services, LLC

The company spells their name two different way for business correspondence it is Achieve Card for advertising purposes it's AchieveCard, from here on out the advertisement spelling AchieveCard will be used.

AchieveCard is a very young company with a very bad problem: How they obtain financial information of perspective customers and how they contact these perspective customers. According to Natasha who works for AchieveCard, AchieveCard has thousands of financial partners but will not disclose the names of those partners. Anyone who has ever had a dealing with one of their thousands of financial partners is eligible for an AchieveCard account.

AchieveCard makes sure you know it by sending you a debit card in your name. Even if you never agreed to open an account with AchieveCard, you heard right. AchieveCard sends out unsolicited debit cards, complete with name and card number on it, letting you know an AchieveCard account has been set up with in your name with your sensitive information - without your written consent.

What does this mean for potential fraud? How about if they send out an unsolicited card in your name to the wrong address? Do you hope the person who opens up the mail does the right thing and shreds the card and does not try to activate it? How about sending the card to an old address where a not-so-law-abiding family member, ex, or neighbor lives?

AchieveCard sending out unsolicited debit cards can be an Identity Theft nightmare. As well as a big legal hassle for Achievecard, setting up a financial account in someone's name without their written consent is illegal.

If you have been a victim of AchieveCard's illegal attempt to establish a financial account in your name, turn them into the FTC and contact a lawyer.

  5. I got this card in the mail about 7 months ago, so i decided to use it today to pay a bill. I loaded the card at walmart which i believed it to be strange that i had to pay for a money pak card to even load the prepaid card in the first place. After loading the card i had to wait 15 mins for it to be loaded unto the prepaid card, but the paper said "instantly to your card"<--RIGHT!!!!
    After the money was loaded i recieved a text saying that my account was at $90 when i actually loaded $100 on the card!
    I called the prepaid card and asked them why i was charged $9.95 and the rep stated that they charge a monthly fee of $10 for usage of the card. So i asked him why doesn't the paper that came with the card state that information, they had everything else in big bold letters except for hidden fees (Guess that's why the call it HIDDEN huh?)
    I said whatever and went ahead to pay the bill i sat out to pay, now because they took part of the money i had to deduct that from my bill. The guess what??? YUP, you guessed it, the payment was declined.
    After an hour of trying to figure out why the card was being declined i called the card company back to complain yet again. The card company not only made me pay $5 for a money pak card to load my card, and charged me $10 for first load fee, they were also charging me a third party fee of $2.50 to pay my bill.
    After 10 mins of debating they gave me my $10 back which allowed me to pay my bill that i needed to pay.
    I am never using this card again in life, matter fact, this card is going straight threw the shredder!!! CROOK'S IF I EVER SEEM THEM!!!

  6. I got one of the cards on Saturday and have no idea why. I really don't even see the point of the card at all - I already have a debit card that I don't have to load or pay fees for and that came from my bank. This didn't even say where it came from. Plus they said the nearest places to load it were in a completely different state (where I used to live!). Anyone would be crazy to activate this. It went right into the shredder at work this morning.

  7. I received a phone call today thanking me for activating an Achieve Card and telling me how to load it up, apply for direct deposit etc...this makes me nervous; is there a card out there in my name that someone could use? Anyone else have this happen or have an idea on what to do?

  10. Well, i also recieved this card, conveniently when i was already expecting a new card from my own bank. Unsuspecting, i activated it, but have not yet loaded it. During the activation process, it asked for my date of birth and my social security #... i entered this info, and now I'm worried. i don't plan to use it, in fact it'll be shredded asap, but what happens now with the personal info that i had given them???

  12. Ha. I received this achieve card in the mail last week. I was debating on activating it to have my pay checks directly deposited to this card. *phew* Good thing I searched and searched until I found this. I figured this card would be convenient being that I am a 19 yr old college student. Anywho, thanks guys!

  13. Tnx for these comments. I too received an unsolicited card and definitely will not activate it. People are finding all sorts of tricky ways to part other people from their cash. It's a sad reflection of our times that our personal stuff is out there in cyberspace for all the creepies and maggotheads to try and steal it. Great progress we've made!

  16. I don't get what the big deal is. Its not a credit card, you have to load money onto it to use it. It would be like if someone found an empty wallet with my name stitched onto it.

    1. How about this:
      The big deal is this company already has your information they want it verified. Let's say achieve sent a card to your former address and the person who lives there now well no so honest and they are smart enough to do some digging and get the rest of your information. They open the achieve account under your name and keep it current because they know sooner or later credit card offers from other companies are going to be rolling in based on the verified information from achieve. Remember they have 1,000 of affiliates according to their reps.

      Or after a matter of months achieve will try to offer a credit card using the "verified" info from the debt card. Now there is a credit card in your name thanks to achieve gateway to fraud card that was sent with your name on it. You may think it's not a big deal until your credit is trashed and YOU not achieve have to fix it.

      How about this one which happens a lot: Potential ID thief watches your mailbox waiting for the mail and is able to at least get your "junk mail" guess what's in the junk mail it's the achieve card with your name on it. Again, same scenario except this time in order for you not to find out they change your address for the achieve card to their address or even an address of an abandoned house. Achieve card and their affiliates based on the verified information the ID thief gives them start sending them credit card applications you don't even see, all they have to do is fill one or several out.

      So, how big of a deal is that achieve card now?

  17. What a relief to have read these comments. And I was really considering activating and using this today until I remembered to do a search and research. Thank God for the Internet and knowledgeable people.I received this card in the mail and wondered how it was sent and I didn't request it.

  18. .......My ACHIEVE-CARD nightmare has been nipped in the BUD, I daresay, and I hope there is no further negative fallout. Thank God I looked and found these tales of warning and scam awareness. First of all, the ACHIEVE card showed up totally unsolicited. I did recently cash a local GOLD BUYERS business check at a local market in San Diego for $60. The market owners took a finger print, SS#, CA ID # photocopy, address and more. It's been three weeks and -- VOILA! -- an ACHIEVE card shows up! NO ONE would give me a legitimate card in any manner whatsoever, let alone unsolicited! In 2009 I watched all of my NINE platinum cards go under in the credit market collapse and have been unable to open so much as a SAVINGS account ever since. That's how bad my credit is now. I do have a hard won DEBIT card from a CREDIT UNION out of state, but my BIG THREE credit report looks like a TOXIC waste dump. That's why I strongly suspected SCAM in this ACHIEVE card. QUESTION: Has anyone filed a report with any consumer protection entity that has been acknowledged and acted upon? If so, can you please POST an address or phone number? And in the meantime, I would love for someone to figure out how to stick it to ACHIEVE proactively and post that too. How can they PARTNER with MasterCard and get away with usurious FEES and predatory "lending"? Any lawyers specializing in CREDIT scams and so forth are encouraged to discuss this aspect here and NOW. Thanks!

    1. When I received an email saying that the Achieve card MasterCard that I recently activated after having it for a year, unsolicited, was being cancelled and I would be receiving a Visa Achieve "card', it raised a flag as to why the bailout of MasterCard. As well, I have direct deposit associated with this mess. I was currently about to activate the Visa until I scrolled the options and ran across the word scam. I totally agree with you about getting a lawyer specializing in unethical and as you say usurious practices dealing with our information, unsolicitation, and fraudulent credit card distribution.
      Maybe a class action suit is in order. Thank You!!!

  19. I also just got this card in the mail and had not asked for it, nor have I ever heard of them. The whole thing already wreaked of a scam and I am just now looking them up and found this website. I am going to turn these guys in. Just think of all the poor, unsuspecting retired people who will use this, load all their money onto it and have direct deposit activated for their social security or disability pay, only to be ripped off or worse! Turn them in, no matter how long it takes or how much of a PITA it is. This outfit needs to be shut down, ASAP!!!

    We have never known anyone named Desiree or Simpson. No one with these f&l names have ever lived at this house. I can't even find any existence of a Desiree Simpson in Bradenton and/or Manatee County.

  23. Same here OMG! i was thinking that was soon I was trying this one site that has surveys and you get paid, I thought this was it. But seriously never open an account or read anything about opening an bank debit card. I have had many under 10sec calls made to my magic jack which I don't have set up, but I do have it notify me in my email account about any calls. So I know it must have been this survey, stupid me gave my name, address and my Magicjack phone number

  28. So I got this card in the mail after I applied to get a netspend card. About 2 weeks later I get a call from a man who said that he was with the FL police department and that If I didn't activate the card and send them $5000 they were sending my information to my local police department and having me arrested. I told him not to worry that I would be calling him right back with my payemtn information. I went right to my local police department and called the man back on speaker phone once I told him where I was he disco the phone and now I can't get anyone to answer. I am scared because he gave me my address my full name and the last 4 of my social so what other information does he have and the police said unless I send them money I can't press charges and I can't put a fraud alert out so what am I suppose to do?

Anyone that wants you to apply for there credit card will give you a letter in the mail approving your credit and have you fill out a form with your info and answer some questions. And "then" in about a week you will get a card in the mail with an activation code.

  33. Since last night, I have received 3 text messages from achievecard and wondered: 1. where they got my phone number and now after reading all these comments; 2. have they sent this card to old addresses that I had. I need to ensure that this oh so "courteous" company did not send something that someone else can use fraudulently.
    It's scary to know a company is doing such things and there doesn't seem to be any recourse against them. Has anyone successfully prosecuted this company for their dastardly deeds?

  36. One of these came in the mail today. It was addressed to a nickname my kid used once on the Playstation Network's game Free Realms. I tried to contact their customer service to investigate, but couldn't talk to one without having to activate the card or agree to some terms and conditions. In any case they have been reported to the Federal Trade Commission.

  41. I received an Achieve card in the mail today and was thoroughly pleased; I really wanted a debit card. As a 15 year old, it's a lot easier to do online shopping and book shopping sometimes and a debit card could be of use. However, please, please DO NOT activate this card. DO NOT ACTIVATE. As a matter of fact, the first thing you should do is cut the card and toss it. Despite how legit it looks, with the VISA logo and all the things written on it, it's a notorious scam. You have to pay for everything you do, ATM withdrawals, deposits, even to use the card. If you want to have a debit card, I highly suggest getting it in person at a bank or online on a trusted site. This is not a place where you can flaunt your personal information and money, and in fact, how they got a hold of your information is very questionable as well.

    Sending debit cards without your consent or knowledge is illegal and highly skeptical. I will probably write a letter of complaint; this issue must be brought out.

  42. I received one of these today. The company is a typical predator preying on the those with little money and with severely broken credit that are unable to open traditional bank accounts. Use of this card would allow them to receive direct check deposits from potential employers as well as make purchases online. But it is of course loaded with tons of fees. Nobody should be desperate enough for this trash.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I got one of these in the mail today. Funny thing is that I've been waiting for my Huntington bank card, so I thought it was that, until I saw it said Visa and mine is Mastercard. Plus, I did request a free Walmart MoneyCard online, but that's a Mastercard. Not sure where it came from, but they got my name from somewhere. I'm not going to activate it, even if I didn't see this site. Because after I opened it, I read the fee plan and I saw that they charge a $9.95 a month fee. Wow! When I used to have a Greendot prepaid Mastercard back in the day, it wasn't even that expensive.

  45. My wife and I received cards in the mail last week. We did NOT activate them, and this week, my wife gets texts thanking her for loading the card. Then a few minutes late text regarding purchases on the card. I called and the first thing their recording asked for was my SSN which I declined to enter. I have now spent 48 minutes on hold trying to talk with someone. I found this site while waiting.

    UPDATE: Just spoke with them, and they said someone type in their cell phone number incorrectly which they are removing, but they wouldn't confirm the account was closed without a SSN which I am not providing. Any suggestions on how to protect ourselves?

  48. We are a small business and received a letter from AchieveCard for an 'employee' that wants her paycheck deposited to the AchieveCard. Well, since we are a small business of only 10 employees (!) it is obvious this is a scam. I am writing this entry in hopes trying to let Charmaine Bell know that AchieveCard is using your name and a Bancorp Bank checking account number. Scary to say the least. (IF in fact a Charmaine Bell exists with this account number - could be more fraud by AchieveCard to get funds from payroll depts., who they hope don't keep close track of new employees). Most of the posts here are for personal fraud by AchieveCard - businesses beware as well.

  61. I don't have one of these crazy cards nor would I ever and I definitely would never recommend this company to anyone. I was walking out to my truck a few day before Christmas and saw a card under the front tire of my truck and I picked it up and went next door to the gymnastics place and asked the owners if they ever heard of the persons name on the card and they said no so I thought I would be a good samaritan and call the card company and maybe I could get the card back to the rightful owner just in case they were really needing it for the holidays and I was very unsuccessful in getting a live person to talk to. And so now it's Dec 27th and I came to work this morning and as soon as I got here I dialed the number on the back of the card and I was told by recording that there would be a 70 minute wait and so I put the phone on speaker and put it in my jacket pocket and went about my business and a little bit after the first hour my battery started to die and so I grabbed another phone and put that one back on the charger and at about 1hr and 40mins I decided to look this company up on line and found an E-Mail address and sent an E-Mail to them and that was at about 10mins to 10. I left my phone number for them to contact me regaurding this situation and my day is almost over with and now it is 3:10 and I made the original phone call at 8:00 this morning and sent the E-Mail at 9:50 and I still haven't heard from anybody from this company. I can see that this company has it's customers best interest at heart. ""NOT""...

  62. I just received a text saying that my achieve account was frozen. Very scary since I have never applied nor received a card from them. Worried that someone from an old address is using a card in my name. Since I knew I didn't have an account there I deleted the text without opening it, but then decided to Google to be sure it was a scam.

  69. Got a text on my cell phone. Said: (972)316-4603 AchieveCardIssue. I don't think i have received one of the cards mentioned above. Called teh number from a different phone. it said it would not answer a phone number from an anonymous caller. Smells bad....

  71. I got a text from these creeps today. First time I had ever heard of or from them. EVER!! The text is telling me to contact them. That my immediate attention is Requested. That I should contact AchieveCard because the account "they" say is mine(because I don't have or better NOT have one) is at risk.

  76. Pertaining to the "achieve card".
    Just got a text on both of my phones from these scammers. Exact text is listed below.

    "Contact Achieve Card @ 601-869-0230. Your account might be at risk."

    This was sent to both my phones w/ different phone #s on 01-24-14 at 6:55pm EST. I have no idea who these people are or how they got my phone #s. I looked up "achieve card," which led me to this site. I decided to leave this post ad a courtesy to others to stay away from these scammers.

  77. I forgot to add on my previous comment for the "achieve card" post that they sent to both my cell phone #s on 01-24-14 at 6:55pm EST. It said it was from:

    837309@text.com

  79. I just got one of these in the mail in my husband's name. He passed away 4 months ago. I just now got a text saying achieve card suspended.

    Going to turn it in to the FTC, I guess.

  85. I just got a text from 312-800-9253 "Urgent AcheiveCard message"! I haven't got a card and didn't call them back. Funny thing is that the text came in to the private,Obamaphone number we use only for emergencies related to my wife's cancer treatments & many Dr.'s for her other health issues and the only recent disclosure of the number registered with the "Do Not Call" Registry was to add it to Facebook to "make my account more secure"(?)!! :| If there's been a card issued & sent to a former address that's being used then maybe I should check to see if my lousy credit score improved and beat them to their own game by taking advantage of it??!!lol...I wonder if they'd give me a cash advance based on the other emails I've been getting about the millions of USD's & Euro's I've won in the Nigerian Lottery along with inheritances of millions left by distant relatives unknown to me??!! All I have to do to access it is to send the "small fee of $200 to process the claim" ;) I might've been born yesterday,just not last night! hahaha, dumbasses

  88. I received a text today April 13,2014. It also said my achieve card was at risk. I do not have one. There was a 414 number and a 262750@rr.com. Well I looked them up and found out that the 414 number came from someone showing an apartment for rent. I was uneasy about the r r.com., so I just deleted the text. Very scary out there.

  89. I have received two text messages from 414232@rr.com and 41440312@localhost. The first message indicated that the Achieve visa card 441858******** was blocked due to fraud and to call 606 910 4312. A day later I receive another with the same Achieve Visa card number but this one indicated that the card was suspended and to call 414 434 4217, I have never had an Achieve card,,,I am worried that someone is using my name to fradulently use a card in my name. Or what kind of game is Achieve playing? And how did they get my number?

  90. DONT DO IT!!! THIS IS A SCAM!! When they sent the card to my house, I called and activated it. The rep told me that I won a $100 gift card lol... In order for me to received the $100, I was told that I had to deposit money into the account first and then they will send an email stating that my $100 gift card is ready. LOL SCAMMM!! I am not slow... So I told them to GO TO HELL & I asked to speak to a supervisor. A supervisor never answered the phone so I just hung up after a while. And plus there is a lot of static on the line as you are calling them. This is totally illegal.

  93. I got an AchieveCard in the mail a few months ago. I recently just got a new job and I used the AchieveCard as my form of DirectDepost. While setting up my card though, to my surprise, they had a lot of information on me that I didn't know they'd be able to have. Things that I hadn't told anyone. Anyways, I've now been at my job for almost two weeks now, it's time for my first check to come in. Now, my job doesn't cut paper checks, it's all electronic. If I don't get my check, what am I to do?

  94. I am so happy I found this. My parents found a random debit card in the mail today, attached on a paper with my name on it. I'm fourteen, and the only information I give is to USPS to schedule pickups and to ship packages with my parents permission. I'm cutting this card in half. I have no idea how it got my info.
