A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the coronavirus stimulus money the government is sending to people in the form of either prepaid debit cards or paper checks.
While we’re all used to tossing credit or debit card offers that come in the mail, this is one time you want to open the envelope. You will know it’s legitimate because it will be in a plain envelope from “Money Network Cardholder Services.”
I neglected to mention, though, what to do if you do end up throwing it out. You can request a free replacement through MetaBank Customer Service by calling 800-240-8100 and choosing option two from the main menu. The standard $7.50 fee will be waived, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
