Stimulus Debit Cards Arriving in Unmarked Envelopes
Don't throw away any mail until you open up everything.
If you're among the 4 million people still waiting for the arrival of their stimulus money from the IRS, the money is on its way, just make sure you keep an eye out for an unmarked envelope in your mail that will contain a prepaid debt card with your stimulus money loaded on it.
Some people that have received the debit cards weren't sure that they were real debit cards, so like we are always instructed to do, many have called their local Better Business Bureau offices to ask if the cards were real or if the cards were some sort of mail scam.
According to News 10, the Better Business Bureau has announced that the prepaid cards are legitimate cards issued by the IRS and are loaded with the money sent out by the IRS as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The cards should be treated just like cash.
Here is what the IRS website said about the cards,
Some payments may be sent on a prepaid debit card known as The Economic Impact Payment Card. The Economic Impact Payment Card is sponsored by the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service, managed by Money Network Financial, LLC and issued by Treasury’s financial agent, MetaBank®, N.A.
If you receive an Economic Impact Payment Card, it will arrive in a plain envelope from “Money Network Cardholder Services.” The Visa name will appear on the front of the Card; the back of the Card has the name of the issuing bank, MetaBank®, N.A.
Information included with the Card will explain that the card is your Economic Impact Payment Card.
