US or International Prepaid Debit Card Help.....Please!

    I got paid from HP over the weekend and transferred the money unto my Netspend Prepaid card. When I tried logging in I was told there is a problem with my account. The money was returned to Paypal but even after speaking with Netspend customer service, my account is still blocked. I was promised that it would be unblocked yesterday and it wasn't. I called back today and was asked for a copy of my national ID and passport. I sent the info but what irks me is that I know not why my account was blocked as they refuse to tell me. I have seen a lot of disgruntled people on the internet thrashing these people.

    So I need a prepaid debit card that I can apply for without a social security number, as I live outside the US. Any ideas, anyone?

    I have a Payoneer card but unable to withdraw from Paypal at the moment.

      Is there a reason you can't use a normal bank account?

        My bank charges JA $2,300 to receive that money. That's a lot of money. Plus I would have to pay a fee for Paypal transfer to international banks.

          I guess that you can't get a PayPal card then?  Not the charge card, but the one you can use like a debit card?  I'm sorry--I don't know any other options... sad

            No, there are restrictions from certain countries.

          Geez that's stupid. Paypal transfers free to my Australian bank. In fact I thought nothing should stop money going INTO the bank.

            It's not the paypal end that's my problem, it's my local bank, they are a bunch of robbers. I don't understand why they would charge me for collecting money in my bank account!

              Can you change banks?

                It wouldn't matter, they all charge expensive fees for international wire transfers. I bank with two commercial banks and two building societies and they are not much different. I need a debit card where I can go to the ATM and collect my money.

        Thanks Ndungusoft, already did. Payoneer upgraded my card three months ago and I am receiving my payments from Paypal, Amazon and Google through the card. I had gotten the payoneer card through Elance last year, only needed the upgrade to use it...lol

        I did mention in the original post that I have a Payoneer card already.

          Then guess it is unclear why you can't just use that?

            I asked for help before my card was upgraded. I had no idea that I could use the card through paypal as they only offer the service to some card users. I had to prove that I had funds in my paypal account by sending a screenshot along with sending a link to my hubpages profile and blogs. At the time I posted this I was in a dilemma and that was three months ago, I since have had the issue resolved, what is so unclear about that?

    Interestingly, I'm having sort of a similar problem with Paypal. I can't transfer money to my husband's bank account because my name isn't on the account. I can't get the debit card either, because I don't have a bank account. The only way for me to get my money is to have paypal cut me a check. Last time I did that it cost $11, but I got it within a week.
