5 ‘Earny’ Reviews
Got an email shortly after an order with Walmart was placed stating Earny had sent an email on my behalf about a price reduction on a the order.
I did not download the Earny app and did not complete the sign on process because they wanted my credit information.
They were never given permission to act in my behalf or given access to my email account. I am now scanning my computer to find the spyware that must be on it.
Don't trust these people.
The day after i signed up bank account had fraudulent charges on it. Learned my lesson big time!
If you're doing some research before deciding whether to sign up for Earny, good! I wish I had done that, but I didn't, so maybe you can learn from my mistake. I haven't seen any questionable activity on their part yet, but be aware that their email notification of a potential MasterCard refund is misleading. It informs you of a MasterCard policy requiring a code to obtain a refund, gives you the phone number, and states "You may request up to 4 codes that are valid for 24 hours." What it does not tell you is that MasterCard only allows you four codes in a twelve month period. I wasted one of my codes on a refund for cat food! It wasn't until I called MasterCard for another code that I found out about the limit. Even if Earny is legitimate (which I now doubt) they are omitting important information, and a lie by omission is still a lie.
DO NOT SIGN UP WITH EARNY! DO NOT EVEN INSTALL THE APP! JUST INSTALLING THE APP GIVES THEM ACCESS TO PRETTY MUCH ALL YOUR PERSONAL & BANKING INFO!
I just STARTED siging up with EARNY and they immediately had most of my personal info! And even if you uninstall the app, they still have that info and still relentlessly email you to give them more personal info. I ENTERED NOTHING, YET...They had my credit card numbers! My bank account numbers! They knew every credit and on-line purchase. THIS IS DANGEROUS! They even tried to get me to open new credit cards to make access even easier. I am blown away by how easy all this is for them. If they can get my info...they can share my info! The very second I installed the app...I started getting DOZENS of spam emails...no way that's a coincidence. And I immediately started getting spam phone calls. And despite uninstalling the app I AM STILL GETTING UN-ENDING ROBO-CALLS & SPAM EMAIL. You are constantly hearing about companies getting hacked and sharing/stealing your personal info...and are scared & angry when this happens, right? Well, EARNY IS DOING THIS AS THEIR BUSINESS MODEL! People are so excited about getting a few bucks here and there they are risking IDENTITY THEFT? JUST INSTALLING THEIR APP DOES THIS...BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
