on a prepaid visa card with no name on it, lying in a parking lot, would you spend it or throw the card away?  Just curious, as DH and I have a debate going, and I am curious to see how many would spend it vs. how many would get rid of it.  What say you?  Any particular reasons why you would or would not?

I would report it lost. It's not my money and I believe in karma.

i'd call the number on the back of the card and let them know it was lost and then would destroy it

I'd report it. No way could I spend it without feeling guilty. It's not mine. Period.

Def wouldn't throw it away! Would you throw away $125 cash?? It's basically the same. I would turn it into the police and if it wasn't claimed then I would get it back and not feel badly for keeping it.

I would report it as lost. There is no reason for me to spend it and throwing away someone else's money is just mean,

I wouldn't. Because someone spent the money for the card and there is no way to track that person down. Why should the company get it back? They already got the customers money.

I would turn it over to the police.  If it wasn't claimed in the amount of time allowed, and I got to keep it I would donate it to toys for tots.
