    Has anyone else ever had that happen to them? I was checking the balances on some prepaid debit cards I had laying around,and noticed one of them was overspent by $20. Should I send them money or just ignore it,unless they send me a bill in the mail.

    As far as I'm aware this is fairly common, it does happen and if they have your details and you don't pay up they will sooner or later do something about this.

    I'm surpised they didn't just decline one of my transactions,instead of letting it go though.

    I have this happen quite a lot but not from transactions but from service charges.
    It's only $20 pay it up you never know they might look on it favorably.

    I was looking into it more,and it seems like the payment processor epoch can cause it to happen. They caused me to become overdraft a few times when I had a bank account.
