just got a new credit card and my friend wants to transfer money onto my card, is it okay if I give them the number thats in the front or can they take my money out that way? also if they do it on a saturday will it not transfer onto my card until a business day or should it transfer right away? its going from paypal to bank of america card
I hope you REALLY trust this friend, because you have given her / him permanent access to your account. Access that will still be there if the two of you ever have a fight.
You might consider calling your bank and getting a different number - but that is up to you. I very stupidly gave only half of my number out over the phone before my brain finally woke up and screamed at me. I called my credit union and they immediately issued me a different number at no charge.
In the future, Clawjaw's suggestion of using PayPal is excellent. And safe.
And for use on the internet, I use what is called a 'Virtual Credit Card'. It is issue by my bank's web site, and it is a number that is good only one time, an then is inactive.
And it might take a day or so for the transfer to show up.
Claw is right,you don't know if they have a lot of knowledge with credit cards. You should have someone that has experience with having money put on your card do it for them,have someone do it that you trust fully.
well what about information about the transfers?
they did it this morning at like 3am, and it still hasnt shown up.
is it true that it wont show up until monday? (a business day)
dont give anyone your card details...
if their transfering from paypal then you can just set up a paypal account too and transfer from paypal to paypal and add the funds yourself
the pin is useless without teh card so thats not a prob
I dont think its bad as long as you know and trust the person :)
but I wouldnt give any details to anyone
is it bad if I already told them the number on the front of my card? I didnt tell them my pin or passwords or anything...
k thanksss a bunch!.
but what about my question about the transfers ^^^
