Flower Mound police report they continue to see residents report they are victims of fraud involving prepaid debit card, commonly known as “green dot cards.”
In some cases, criminals use phone calls or email to threaten that if prepaid green dot cards are not used to pay off various debts or fines, the victim will be arrested.
The most important thing to keep in mind with prepaid debit cards is that no official agency will ever call or email someone and demand these cards be used.
Prepaid debit cards should be used just like cash.
If you give the card information out, it is the same as giving cash away and is almost impossible to track or catch the criminals once they have been given the card information.
