I received a Visa Reward Card backed by Metabank two days ago in the mail. The letter was professionally done and even included a Visa Prepaid Cardholder Agreement insert !
The card came in the mail two days ago. The letter said that I was receiving this $100.00 reward card as a "Thank you" for having my recently recalled vehicle serviced.
RED FLAG! I have not had any of my vehicles serviced for a recall. The letter wanted me to enter the last 6 VIN numbers of the vehicle that was serviced. STRIKE TWO!
Since I have three vehicles, none of which have received a recall service, I had no clue as to which vehicle they needed the VIN number for and none of them had been recalled for service issues anyway STRIKE THREE! Out of curiosity, I called the number given to activate/register the Reward Card, but since I did not have the VIN number, that was a dead end. Now I am convinced this is some type of new scam, but I can't figure out what the angle is. Does the VIN number give these jerks my personal info for them to scam me further, or are they going to bill me for something I did not order?
Don't know! The card is shredded and in the garbage!
