I was locked out of my moneypak account. I looked for a contact number on the offical moneypak website but was unable to find one. I went to google and typed moneypak phone number. I clicked on the first link which gave me the phone number(###) ###-#### I called thw number. It rang once and went to playing music ad if i were on hold. Eventually a gentleman who ideniftied himself as michael answered. I told him i was trying to gain access to my account. He asked me if i was loading a moneypak to my card i said yes i am. He then said what is the moneypak number you are trying to load. I gave him the number and he asked for how much. I told him 50 . He then hung up abd would not answer when i called back. I then called from another number i asked he return my money. His voice then changed and he started arguing with me asking if i needed a blunt. I then hung up.

It seems that there is a common scam with these cards.

You should report the fraud after firstly checking your balance as I indicated previously.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
