Beware of get rich quick scams where someone tells you to go purchase one of these cards for a certain dollar amount – then they ask for the code on the back of the card and will supposedly add more cash to the card. Do not give away that code on the back of the cards!
Another scam is to purchase one of these cards to help a loved one in need. Some stranger calls you and acts as a law enforcement official and tells you to go get one of these cards to bail a loved one out. They then ask for the code on the back – but your loved one is not in trouble at all.
Treat the code on the back of these cards just as you would your bank account number!
