T-Mobile Money - Anyone else getting repeatedly locked out of your money account for two weeks at a time?

sparkst

    Second time I've been locked out of my account and denied access to my money for two weeks. Calling customer support is a waste of time because they say they don't know why and there is nothing they can do. Locked out two times in six months is impressing me. Certainly glad I didn't make the mistake of actually using this account like a checking account or I would have bills bouncing all over the place.

     

    I'm just curious. Am I the only one?

        I'll be completely honest that I have no working experience with T-Mobile money. When it first launched I did look into it as a viable alternative option outside of my main financial institution.

         

        however when I called T-Mobile three times to inquire about the details and how this worked and what the actual benefit was to me no one could explain it and was not familiar with T-Mobile money and that was with me calling T-Mobile money.

         

        suffice to say I do not have the faith in the product based upon the lack of knowledge of the people who were supposed to know the product.

          Hey there! I am very sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing your account! Please do call us when you have a chance and tell the specialist you speak with to reference internal document DOC-444527 for all the info they need to assist you in regaining access to your account.

              The T-Mobile Banking customer support are basically just people off the street who tell you there is nothing they can do because internal security flagged your account. He had no idea what internal document DOC-444527 is and there is nobody for me to talk to above him. For the third time, I was told that they are escalating my request to turn my account back on and MAYBE the security people would call me (they didn't last time) but he really didn't know for sure.

               

              Thanks for at least trying. The T-Mobile Money call center is really horrible and there is no where to complain. They have a script they are reading and you have to fight to get in a word to explain what your problem is once the script comes on the screen.

               

              It wouldn't be so bad (well, other than that they are holding several thousand dollars hostage) except they are also not paying the bill that I was autopaying out of the account. Got a call from T-mobile last week that my payment had bounced. The T-mobile support is great and he redacted the fee for a bounced payment. Thank goodness I didn't risk any of my other bills to T-Mobile Money.
