    Giving back to black hat....

    This method may be posted somewhere on the forum but I could not find it using the handy dandy search tool :p . If so I apologize in advance.
    Also, to some of you this may seem very easy but I have been asked how to do this several times over the past week.

    Step 1
    Get a new email address - Gmail preferably.

    Step 2
    Go get a Green Dot card from CVS/Wal-Mart etc etc... I have 3 in my name so I do not think it matters if you already have one. Plus I do not think that the people in 3rd world countries give a crap. Once you have done this register for your online account, and go to the option for Sign Up for Direct Deposit. This will give you a Routing number and account number SAVE it write down whatever.

    Step 3
    Sign up for a Paypal Premier account (im sure it will work for personal just never tried it.) Then when it comes to the point to adda bank account then use the routing number and bank account number provided earlier. The name of the bank will be "Columbus Bank and Trust" check a few days later a you will have the deposits!

    Step 4
    All you have to do now is verify it by entering the 2 small amounts and you are done! You will also have the ability to transfer money back in forth between the "bank account" which when you are ready you can just use your Green Dot card to take out money or use like a credit card since it has a Visa/Mastercard logo!

    Question 1 -
    Yes you could use different names etc, but be VERY careful with this. Because of new Credit Card laws you are now required to input a SS# for all Green Dot cards. I am not aware of any that you do not.

    KSoze - Yes I am located in Texas and have done this 3 times, twice in my name once in my wife's.

    yes this works in the US, i do it, but the only problem with it is that in your own name you can only have 4 cards at a time, now on the other hand you can do this wiith gift cards, but not just any gift card, has to be a netspend. theres another one, 4 netspends, 4 greendot, and you have yourself 8 PP accounts.

    The last time i got a netspend card, it said on the front, make sure to have your social security or tax id number available when you activate it. So it seems you can use a business name/ein for it. Safer to just get an ein, than to mess around with banking and fake ss#.

    I shall have to see what a green dot card is and if my CVS and Walmert has them.

    I just want a back up PayPal in case. I don't mind about the SSN#.

    Thank you!

    I've been looking into this more and from what I can tell this method won't work, I came across this thread, the entire website is devoted to paypal and ebay issues:

    http://www.aspkin.com/forums/credit-card-alternatives/2709-walmart-visa.html

    It seems that the green dot cards do not allow transfers from internet payment services and will freeze your account if you try this... I would appreciate hearing any further information from anyone who has tried this. It looks like it works for some people but not others so its kind of sketch

    Yah, no one said to transfer..... use the ATM VISA LOGO PAYPAL card to pull the cash out.. at $400 a day, that should suffice.
