So recently I sold something online, and I got a good deal for it, but the guy said he would pay me with an Amazon Store Card — like by giving me the card # and other details. So the deal went through and I got the details, and the card worked on Amazon. But after some research, I’m a little confused. I have a suspicion that this may be a stolen credit card. He said he got it in a random giveaway online, but it doesn’t make sense to me that he would give someone a credit card as a form of payment.
He also was acting a little suspicious. He first told me that it was preloaded with 350$, and then afterword’s when I realized it was a credit not debit card, he told me I could spend as much money on it as I wanted and that it was fine.
So what are the chances that this is a scam, and if so, what repercussions will happen if it gets traced back to me that I’ve been used this card. I’ve ordered a visa gift card to test the card on my primary amazon account.
If it ends up being a stolen card, will the money I’ve spent be charged back/shifted to my actual cards?
Sorry for the long post and thanks for the help!
