I finally received my Visa prepaid card after months of calling and inquiring about its status. When I tried to activate it over the phone, I was told that the information I entered did not match the record on file. When I tried to activate it on the web, I received a message saying the card was locked. I called Verizon support, who gave me the direct number to the promotions department, but I've been unable to get through to anyone after several calls and waiting for hours on hold. It has been six months since my service was installed. How can I activate my card?
I have tried and when I finally get through I've been transferred multiple times, eventually winding up at the same pre-recorded menu that tells me that my information does not match what is on file. At this point I can't see how this "reward" isn't a scam and will be cancelling my service ASAP.
