Re: Discover money messenger

It is not a new feature. This is a feature you do not want to abuse. Some use this feature frequently to the same person and got a call from Discover and PayPal warning them.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

I used to abuse it all the time and never got a call. I would like to see that thread if you have a link.

Re: Discover money messenger

I use it all the time too and use the same person all the time. I have never had a heard of discover calling me or anyone about this. Isn't that the point, to send money to someone. It doesn't say you can only do it once. I would also like to see the thread where someone said discover warned them?.

Re: Discover money messenger

I saw a thread about this but the person had the same name, he was sending himself money. Unless you refer to another topic.

Re: Discover money messenger

Looking for the link but if my memory serves me right there was this person sending money to his/her family's PayPal accounts and have them deposit the money back to his/her account. Discover and PayPal caught on to this and gave he/she a warning.

In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi Dividend (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)

BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)
