Their online login sometimes doesn't work, but if it's not working at ATM, I think it's a very bad sign
WFPP is very secretive operation, messages are vague, confusing and almost feels like a scam. they take our money and control, I don't feel right....

I just wanted to update that my barclays charge did show up as a purchase in the end, so as another data point to the person a page or two back that said it works, it did. It originally pended as a cash advance and lingered there for 3 or 4 days and finally when it posted it showed it as a purchase. It used my entire cash advance credit limit, and I could only charge on the wells fargo whatever my cash advance limit was.

Judging from my experience, you are both dead.

Account Closed

Just adding another datapoint, my account got closed yesterday after a load. Yesterday would have been my 2nd load in about 25 days. Both loads were under 2k. I didn't get an e-mail of this happening, I only found out today when I couldn't log into my account and when I called in the automated machine said my account was closed. The CSR informed me it was misused and that is all they could say. Looks like this is ending faster than I anticipated.

EDIT:
I forgot to note that they are going to issue a paper check to me so my funds aren't tied up. Don't want people to get worried now.

did you change your funding source? did you get errors trying to log in?
what was your spending pattern? names on CC and WF match?, etc.

did you drain in down to a zero balance?

what card/cards did you use to fund?

more info. would be helpful.
sorry to hear that your account got closed.

What is your experience? pl. explain

Not dead, live and back up again, did not do a thing....yesterday "Security information incorrect." could not login, tried today - opened up as if nothing was wrong. Don't understand why the system lies or give wrong message?

No Problem. My funding source was always the same card (CSP) with the same name. I did get an error but it was more of a "Incorrect Credentials" error. My spending on the otherhand was only at wal mart which probably triggered it but I thought I may be safe since I didn't get near the max at the time and didn't drain to 0. Let me know if you have any other questions. Hopefully I can help others stay in the game. One last note, I did try doing a recurring fund thinking it may make it seem more "normal" with a load of 1900 every 1st and 15th. My account closed after the first load from using this process.
