It worked again!  Second month in a row.  I think it's safe to say that it's "fixed" and will work from now on.  A small victory!  Smiley Happy

Another success.  I'm going to assume that this is completely fixed, so I'll "Solution" this thread.

Maybe the dumbest explanation I have ever heard far a major screwup.

What explanation?  The following? 

 

"Prepaid cards are no longer accepted as they are easy to use as a way to avoid automatic or overdue payments, avoid termination or unreturned equipment fees, etc.. you see where this is going, I hope."  

 

If that's the explanation you are referring to as being the "dumbest", it is a valid explanation and has perfectly valid reasoning behind it.  Many companies with contracts don't allow prepaid cards for payments. 

 

As has been demonstrated, a blanket policy may not have been the way to go, but there is still a valid need for it.  It's hardly "dumb".

Yes it is dumb, I can cancel any other type of card and have a new one issued in 3 days. You still have the same problem as you have with a prepaid card.

Cancelling your card doesn't cancel your account, nor the judgment that can be filed against it for non payment.  

 

Not allowing prepaid cards has a valid reason.
