    Hi blackhatters!

    I am really grateful for sharing your wisdom and i have learned a lot, but today i have an unrelated question.

    I searched for this info on Google but no luck.

    Lets say that i want to load funds in a virtual prepaid card with my regular credit card.

    Are those loads usually instant?

    Will they make me wait a day or so?
    Would they call me to verify it?

    My sister is going in a very long trip and i was thinking in case of emergency i could use that way to provide her some money, but if its delayed it wouldn't fit my purpose.

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on what card your planning on using.

    This is what I would do. Get a Card that can be loaded with Greendot moneypak. Its instant. All you need to do is log on to your account and activate it.
