What all information is needed when you buy a greendot moneypak prepaid card at Walmart in the US. Can I buy it for a friend using cash (not a credit card or something) and just give her all the card information so she can load it to her paypal?

    Which moneypak card in which store in which country? In its present state, your question is unanswerable, and in any case, it is best directed to the company which issues the moneypak card or the store where you are buying it rather than here. Commented Aug 14, 2012 at 11:43

  • Probably. It's just cash-equivalent, after all.

    Just on the off chance this applies: These Greendot Moneypaks have had some scams associated with them. And prior to that they were being used in a hacking fraud scam where a virus took one's computer "hostage" and claimed they were the FBI and required a moneypak order to release the computer or else "face the consequences"! So, please make sure everything is legit before you part with your real money.
