In shock!!!!!

Ya know, Acorns for the most part is a great idea and useful and user friendly platform for people to invest, bank, and do other things, but I have to say that I just found out that without warning or notice my debit card was cancelled and a new one was ordered all because of. A dispute that I filed about a transaction I had seen that I had no knowledge of. So without calling me or emailing me to let me know the results of my dispute and after I specifically told an employee over the phone I cannot have my card cancelled they without warning did it anyways so now not only do I have to take the hit of the transaction unknown but now I have to endure the bombardment of returned payment fees if all the bills I have set up on autopay through the card that was cancelled. This is a very halfbaked unthought out protocol and I am on the fence of switching to a different investment institution because of this. And it’s not like they expedited the card delivery either, I now have to wait 2 weeks, and that’s business days don’t forget so weekends don’t count for the amount of time I’m waiting. Wouldn’t you rush someone’s card to them seeing how there is no physical bank for acorns and one depends on that debit card to have daily access to the money they worked hard for? So frustrated right now

Okay-ish.

I’ve been a member since 2019 and for the most part I’m okay with the app. One thing that truly gets under my skin is that I can’t review my statements from the app. I have to physically get on a desktop computer in order to see my statements. It’s quite annoying considering I don’t always have a desktop around when I’m doing my finances. You cant go online from your phone and do it, you have to use a desktop. I’m not sure why it’s set up that way, but it’s annoying.

Also, I have used Robinhood for 2 months, and in those 2 months I gained over $70 in stocks/investing. Whereas I’ve had Acorns for almost a year and the most I ever gained in investing is $35. I have waaaay more money in Acorns than I do in Robinhood, yet I managed to make more with less. Idk what Acorns is doing with my money, but it’s not really investing the way it can. I’m thinking of canceling Acorns because it’s honestly not working for me anymore.

I think the best feature is the roundup investments, it lets me save by keeping the change. However, my personal bank does the same. It seemed like a good app when I first got it, but now I’m feeling like it’s not putting my money to good use. Plus, needing me to log onto a desktop just to see my statements is, once again, very annoying. Most apps, whether it’s a bank or another investing app, provide you with your statements without having to do the extra work. Why are they being so extra? Why are they not investing my money properly? Idk..

Transaction Dispute

A fraudulent company accessed my checking account and took almost $1500 from my account in a matter of a few hours. Upon seeing the first charge come out, I called customer support in a matter of a couple of minutes of it happening to implore them to freeze my debit card to stop the charges. I was told I would be sent an email, which I was, with directions. The directions were to log in to my account. Why can’t the person on the phone walk you through what do. I was obviously already logged into the app on my phone; how else did I know that fraud charges were hitting my account. I filed a dispute on the charges. I was told there would be a 10 day investigation with the possibility of a provisional credit depending on what they find. I will change this one-star review if this company actually does the right thing and provide me with the relief that I deserve and their insurance will cover. I hate to say this but I suspect it was an inside job and the same people who are investigating this matter are the ones who perpetrated it. I just received an email stating that I have not responded to their email inquiries (not true) and that they have determined that the matter is resolved on my end and that they have closed the ticket. I can’t believe that after having had $1500 fraudulently taken from account that not one single person from Acorns can give me a call on the phone. I am being treated like I am the criminal. Beware of using this company!
