Talk to your Son

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Netspend is a PRE-PAID Debit Card, and not a Credit Card.  That is to be used the person has to put money on the card first.  So a company is not going to go around just sending out cards at random.

While you want to think the best of your son, it is very likely that he in fact did request the card, probably using false information, at a minimum lying about his age.  Now, if he did do this and depending on what he used he may have just committed Identity Theft.  So in you contacting the "authorities" they may actually turn around and investigate your son where he may be in some serious trouble..yes it is that serious.

Now, there are a couple of other possibilities.   This could just be an advertisement, where he got on some mailing list that he was old enough to have this card, this may indicate that he is a victim of Identity Theft so a check to see if he has any Credit Reports may be a wise move as well.
