NetSpend Informative - Is NetSpend legitimate
I received a NetSpend Visa Debit Card in the mail, I think as a payment for a survey site, but I am not 100% sure. When I went online to activate the card, they asked for my SSN, and would not let me continue when I declined to provide it. I have never heard of this company, and this is a pre-paid debit card, and I have never had to provide ANY information to activate a prepaid debit card before (other than card number and security code), so I decided not to continue, and to look the company up on the web. It seems that there are numerous complaints about them, so I am thinking that maybe I will just forget the $20 that the survey company "paid" me with this card, and ask that the survey company only use reputable, well-known avenues of payment (such as PayPal), or I will quit their surveys...
