Thread Details

In todays mail I got a Netspend debit card with my name on it.
I thought it might be a survey award or something from somewhere but it wouldnt tell me anything about the card without activating (which requires me to give my Soc # and to acknowledge that I agree with their agreements).. This all seems a little weird.. Im not even certain their is a balance.. The card paperwork certainly doesnt imply that someone sent me money/the card.. Anyone have any ideas why I would have received this??

I'ts a loadable Visa-type card, that is, if you load money on it at a service location, that amount is available on the card to use. I had to use one a long time ago when I lived in
TX so that I could pay a bill online that only accepted a Visa card.

Thanks for the info.. Any idea though why I would receive a card without requesting one?
If someone sent me money on it wouldnt it say that somewhere? This all just seems too weird.. I'm very apprehensive to activate a card with my name on it that I did not request.

I received one today as well without requesting it. Anyone receive one and know if there is money on it?

One of your friends (or a random person) signed you up for the card, in hopes that you will activate it so they can get the referral bonus. I believe it's $5 or $10 bucks.
