    I read an article about this guy that used a prepaid card(like Vanilla Visa, although I think it was an American Express card) and he, somehow, overdraft the card and was able to collect cash or merchandise.

    It was something like this.

    He eventually got arrested. I think he did it at bars or something.

    I have searched for this article but haven't been able to find it. I'd like you fine people here to find this article for me. But only if you're not to scared to do so.

    The choice is yours.

    same principle.

    like how there are many telcos that give their prepaid customers overdraft 'facility'.

    do telcos in arsetrallia do that ?

    'But soon when prepaid debit card companies offer a line of "overdraft protection" it will work just like a credit card: Go over your limit and the bank will cover you, then send you a bill and start charging a fee and interest.'

    It wasn't a prepaid debit card though(not like Rush card, Green Dot, etc.). It was like a Vanilla Visa or something.

    It'll help me with my magic show.
