As a tourist, I was in Florida, USA. I had my bag stolen. I bought a paypal debit card from family dollar to use it temporarily. I deposited the last money I had left in my pocket into the card. Turns out the card was not active! My first question; How to load money to an inactive card? Shouldn't it be active as soon as it is loaded? Then I had to call customer service to get it activated. And for this you need to know good English. I didn't have enough English! After calling customer service, we saw that. You need to register with SSN for the card to be active! My second question is, how can you sell it to everyone and in easily accessible markets like Family Dollar? Don't you need to warn people? I gave the card to a friend of mine who has SSN. He registered but could not use it. We called customer service countless times for about 1 month. Neither the card was activated nor could we receive my money. and even though we sent them the passport information and address information they requested. We couldn't convince them that the card belonged to us. I think paypal is committing fraud this way. If you are a tourist, never take paypal! Don't let Paypal scam you out of the last money in your pocket
