Green Dot Bank Is Now Facing A Massive Penalty

Green Dot Bank is now facing a massive penalty stemming from compliance risk management issues predating the company’s current management.

Green Dot has been hit with a proposed consent order from the Federal Reserve stemming from compliance risk management issues predating the company’s current management, the fintech said Tuesday in its earnings report.

The digital Bank set aside an “estimated liability” of $20 million in 2023’s fourth quarter to cover the proposed consent order, the company said but added that the “estimate of the aggregate range of reasonably possible losses” could total $50 million.

“We are confident in our financial and regulatory positions and do not expect this to impact our ability to operate and serve our customers and partners on an ongoing basis,” Green Dot CEO George Gresham said in a statement.

“The regulatory environment is continuously evolving, and we are committed to partnering and fully cooperating with our regulators to ensure our products are designed and marketed in ways that put our customers’ best interests at the forefront.”

Green Dot Bank has faced fraud allegations from various customers who have been locked out of their account from weeks to months.

Many customers are having difficulty receiving a direct response from the bank’s customer service department, with many claiming to have been given the runaround.

What is being done about it? Nothing so far, though many of these reports have been submitted to the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

“My funds are gone. I believe now the bank [Green Dot Bank] is holding it hostage. It’s my SS money and I can’t get it back, they keep extending the date.

I’ll get my new card with my money on it this has been going on since the August 1 and I was in the hospital when I was hacked..I want my money it’s mine not yours green dot,” says Sandra Machuga, who’s reported to FrankNez before.
