I purchased five MoneyPak cards from Walmart for $1000 each.

I purchased five MoneyPak cards from Walmart for $1000 each. I tried to reload my prepaid card the following day and they said the MoneyPak was already used. I called GreenDot and opened a dispute. I them immediately tried another card and that one had a 0 balance also. I called Greendot back and opened a dispute for that card..the agent told me to scratch the other MoneyPaks and open a dispute for those also. I faxed over my receipts, along with copies of the MoneyPaks. Now they tell me there's nothing they can do?! This was money for me and my kids' vacation. Can I sue them?

Hello Kenisha,

Yes, you can certainly file a lawsuit against the company. Your cause of action would lie in a tortious conduct (negligent and/or intentional) and/or breach of contract theory.
Another step you can take would be to lodge a formal complaint, free of charge, with the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General's Office. Everything you need to do so is available here: On-line Consumer Complaint/Inquiry
