Prepaid cards are a new way that scammers can get their hands on a person's money without targeting their bank account. In one case, consumer Shirley Hill received an email from the “American Pay Day Loan Company” notifying her that she had been approved for a loan. When she called the phone number provided, however, she was told that she would first have to prove her repayment ability. She carried out instructions to purchase three Green Dot MoneyPak cards and load them with $1,400 dollars. When Hill called back, she was asked to provide the number on the back of the cards, which she did. Since anyone who possesses the number on the back of a prepaid card can access the funds immediately, Hill's money was gone and untraceable. The Green Dot package warns customers that the company is not responsible for repayment of stolen funds. Green Dot also says that it is working on a safety system for the cards. This may include an alert to the cards' owners of suspicious activity.
