1 Viacord Consumer Reviews and Complaints

Original review: Nov. 26, 2008

My daughter subscribed to Viacord. GE Money Bank runs their billing/collect service for them. I signed as a co-signer for my daughter. I NEVER received a bill or anything stating that the account was past due. However, they reported this (my daughters' account), as again I am a Co-signer only and was NEVER billed, to the collection agency reflecting MY CREDIT!!!!! How can they report to the credit agency something they have NEVER even billed me for????

Then when I called to get this cleared up... first, I was insulted and told by someone named **, that tells me NOTHING of what the bill is for (I did not know it was for Viacord!) nor whose name it's in. But instead, she actually says to me that it is my husband's acct. and he's primary holder on acct. that you do not know about!!!!!! Can you believe this?? Her name was/is **.

After calling several times, I finally got someone who gave me the right info, but when I argued my point with her and asked to speak to a supervisor. She put me on Indefinite hold!! I called once again and before I could even explain anything, I was hung up on!! All the 'women' there were rude, had no knowledge nor clue as to WHAT was going on, nor did they barely speak or understand English as they ALL (and I am serious about the ALL) had accents. Once again, I called and a MAN answered who was actually polite, yet had no info to give me other than "No, we do not have the number for Viacord." I finally gave up and really got nowhere and never got the number for Viacord, so as to check the status of the cord viability and to see if I could take over the account IF the cord WAS viable!!??

  • Medical success: The cord blood from ViaCord used in medical treatments has yielded nearly a 90 percent success rate in patients.

  • Lab proximity to airport: ViaCord's processing and storage facilities are located close to the international airport in Cincinnati, expediting the process of delivering the blood.
