The Better Business Bureau of North Alabama says prepaid debit cards that arrived in an unmarked envelope stating it the economic stimulus payment are legitimate.
The card contains money sent out by the IRS as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
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.
