    I'm looking for a prepaid debit card that accepts DIRECT DEPOSIT and is anonymous (doesn't need my SSN or other personal information).

    Anyone have a clue?

    Most if not all of what you are talking about requires some sort of personal verification. PM me I may be able to help you get a card IN YOUR NAME w out a SS number

    I've bought different kinds of these cards at Wal-Mart and some drug stores and I haven't once been asked for an SSN. Once you buy it, you can either go online or call their free number to personalize the account. But still, I've never been asked for an SSN.
    The simplest way to negotiate change is to focus on the positive.

    Those are most likely prepaid "CREDIT" cards. Debit cards are different, as you can supply a direct depositor a checking account that's linked to the debit card to get direct deposits.

    Moneypak is one annonymous online virtual card that can be used to fill paypal balance or to shop online, it is only available for US as of now. So not sure if this is what you want.

    I passed by one in a CVS or Walgreens ( I always get them confused now). I think one of the ones they had there was call a GreenDot re-loadable debit card. As far as i know you dont need any ssn or anything like that either.

    Any company you're going to find is going to want a SSN due to Bush's Patriot Act law. That is any prepaid card that you want to LOAD more than $250 or be reloaded, OR be able to have ACH deposits/transfers to it.

    The way its set up right now is that a prepaid card is considered a 'stored value card' or 'gift card' because it is under $250 when first loaded. By using these cards, you are anonymous and do not need to file/turn in anything, but there are drawbacks such as fees, no ATM access, or ACH.
    Any more and it would not be considered a gift card (would be a prepaid card) and will require the card issuer to comply with the Patriot Act, which states that the Financial Institutions verify the identities of customers.
    If you do 'verify' your card, the money services business (usually bank/financial institution) would give you the whole benefits of a debit card, usually including but not limited to withdraws via ATM, and ACH capabilities (Being able to Direct Deposit into your card).

    Bottom line is that there are really no long term companies in the US you would be able to use to ACH funds to and withdraw from the card without giving up your SSN, since it is technically illegal unless the financial institution can verify your identity. You would need to be seeking an offshore/non US bank that can fulfill your needs.

    Do you know of any UK cards that allow this without verification or is it the same deal? I too need a card that can accept BACS payments but ideally not in my name.

    Happy to pay for this.

    I live in the US and need something I can prepay with cash so I can buy some domains anonymously. Any ideas?

    Due to the Patriot Act the answer is no, you will have to look overseas for a reloadable prepaid card that doesn't require a SSN.
