I bought a fifty dollar card for my 10 year old Granddaughter for her birthday. These cards are very deceiving, They were placed among the prepaid visa and mastercards.
I had no idea that they didn't work the same. When they went to register the card, it opens a checking account and asks for your social security number. My daughter had to call to cancel the checking account that they opened for a 10 year old. They used 34 dollars on this card and the next store they went to wouldn't take the card for the remaining 16 dollars because they froze the account because the checking account was cancelled.
This is clearly a scam.
They called numerous times to get back the 16 dollars but have not been able to use the card since the first time. I ended up giving the poor girl the extra money, I feel that she and I really got ripped off.
Reason of review: Inactive prepaid card .
Monetary Loss: $16.
Preferred solution: Full refund.
