If you lost or shredded yours, don't call Meta Bank. It's a waste of time. Call instead 800/240-8100. You'll get a person who will solve the problem.

I haven't had a debit card, ever. Credit union sent me one once and I exchanged it for an ATM card. Debit cards have none of the protection of credit cards. However, Why would you get a card from a bank you've never heard of if you don't have an account there? Was it tied to some sort of loan? I get junk mail all the time with phony cards in it but just toss 'em. I'm sure blind solicitations get less than a one percent response. Why did you call them?

I came close to shredding mine because it looked fake and did not have an explanation with it that satisfied me. Fortunately I didn't.

That's simply not true. My debit card from my local federal credit union has the same protections as a credit card. I am not responsible for fraudulent activities made on my card by others and my bank accounts are protected from someone trying to gain access with my debit card. I have not inquired if I can freeze payment on a faulty sale like with a credit card, but that has never been a problem for me. "Visa's Zero Liability Policy* is our guarantee that you won't be held responsible for unauthorized charges made with your account or account information. You're protected if your Visa credit or debit card is lost, stolen or fraudulently used, online or offline. " And, my credit union offers me the ability to lock/unlock my card whenever I wish: "To block your cards immediately, Visa Card Lock gives you card control at your fingertips by letting you lock or unlock your debit and credit cards in ComputerLine or the mobile app."

Yes, if you paid someone else to file your taxes with the IRS, you get a prepaid/debit card instead of a check.

I threw mine away and had to order a replacement. (The card had my first name, and my wife's last name.) That was interesting when they tried to validate my identity over the phone. The website is an absolute disaster. I created an account simply to transfer the funds on the debit card to my checking account. However, my bank has an "&" in the name - the site wouldn't accept it.
