accidentally sent AP to email with one letter off (dumb), was only $20 staples rebate so wasn't so bad, wrote to them to cancel...then made $500 payment to same wrong email as it was saved that way(dumber)!! the transaction was "completed" so I decide to go on gmail and create this new email address that i sent to...open new AP account with this email and money is there but I must have repeated some info from my other account so they locked the account...can't get the money out!!

After 30 days if it is unclaimed it is sent back to sender, no? BTW, I had to laugh as I kept reading, but I feel for you.

so my CVS still carries tons of VRs. and as we all know you can only buy them with cash. my question is who is buying them and so many ?
yesterday the rack was full, today it was almost empty... does this really have a legitimate use and for who ?

Could have been worse. At least you have control over the recipient e-mail address.

I went into FD on Friday to reload my Serve, only to find that the weird VR the ones that say "Do Not Remove From Store" were all gone. Thankfully they still had one behind the counter. Who has been taking those is my question.

Funny how some people think the only reason Visa issues VRs is so people have an easy way to MS...

i would think people who make cash and don't want to report it but need a credit or debit type card or someone who doesn't have credit or debit card and needs to do online transactions...just some ideas

Visa does not issue VR.

Do those cards all have the same UPC? If so, make a note of it and then if you can't find the card, the cashier could probably type in the UPC.
