Has Your Credit Card Ever Been Stolen?
Up until a few weeks ago, I was able to happily reply “no” to the above question. I never had a problem with my credit card until a few weeks ago when I received a call from TD Bank asking if I authorized a payment of FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS to which I replied “NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”.
Apparently someone somewhere got some of my credit information and tried to buy something for $4000. They did not have ALL MY information so the transaction did not go through. “Phew” I said to the guy at TD Bank, as I didn’t have $4000 to lose. He assured me that even if the transaction did go through, I would not have been responsible for it. Even with that assurance…
It is SCARY to go through this.
Someone had suggested to me a while ago that I get a NetSpend card to prevent this from happening again when I make an online transaction. Of course, I can’t be sure that my credit card was compromised online – however, as I rarely use my credit card offline, it isn’t unreasonable to assume the compromise occurred online.
I did not want yet something else to keep track of so I didn’t get a NetSpend card at the time it was mentioned to me. Now I have one and I am glad I do!

Why You Should Get A NetSpend Card
Give you $20 when you refer someone to them for a Prepaid Card?
Give the new user $20 once they load $40 onto their Prepaid Card?
Do this over and over again for everyone you refer?
With a NetSpend prepaid card… refer a friend, and you each get $20! In other words… if you want…you can make $20 over and over and over again just by telling people about the NetSpend prepaid card.
It’s like someone handing you a stack of $20 dollar bills and telling you that for every $20 bill you give way, they are going to give you $20. How many $20 bills do you think you can give away?
The Fastest $20 I Ever Made!
I went to CVS yesterday to load my card. By the time I got into my car, NetSpend had put my $20 bonus on my card. Not a bad ROI!
