1. You might be having trouble with the withdrawal fee in an ATM machine.
Some ATM machines don't deduct a withdrawal fee at the first moment you withdraw money. At the second or third time, the ATM machine will deduct double or triple withdrawal fees. The problem is not in the USSC Money Card but in the ATM machine itself. The best thing to do is report this problem to the bank.

Then i've been very busy by then that i did not realized time flies so fast, its been months my ussc card was zero in balance.one day i went to the western union to deposit money to my visa card but the attendant told me i have to come back 2-3 days to deposit bcoz my accoubt gas been closed she said and asked for the details of my card (the number not included the pin) so i gave it. Then after 3 days i was able to deposit again. Is it realy posible that one card can be close because its been months in zero balance??

kaka deposit ko lang po ngayong araw nato at ngayon ding araw nato naku ko po yong replacement ng USSC card ko. Nagdedeposit po ako tapos pag dating namin sa bahay eni check ko through online tapos ang kinalabasan ang card ko ay inactive or naka block. Kaya pumunta ako sa USSC office kung san ako nag dedeposito at nag replce ng card. Kinuha ng employee sa westernunion yung PIN number ko? Para daw e check nya ng mabuti na naka blck po ba talaga. Kaya binigay ko para ma check nya. TAMA po ba yun na tinanong nya yong pin ko? mag aantay nalang ako ng 24 hours kung ma active na ba ung card ko nato na bago at sana pag check ko bukas andon ang pera ko. Tama po rin ba na kinuha nya yong lumang USSC card ko?Reply po.
