Hi Readydebit:

This email is very concerning to me. I didn't apply for this card. Nor did I agree to fund it. 

My first thought was "Alas! Someone has stolen my identity!" 

My second thought was "Wait - why would an identity stealer use my real email address, thus alerting me to the fact that they are stealing my identity?" 

My third thought was "What if this person thinks they're actually me?"

And finally, I thought "they just put in the wrong email address."

However, I would like confirmation that this is the issue. Could you perhaps let me know the last 4 digits of the social security number used to obtain this READYdebit, or the DOB, or the last 4 digits of the credit card used to fund it, or where it's being mailed to?

Yours in confusion,

Casey A. Williams

    your parents should get an 'F' in the facebook grade your parents on their naming originality thing...
    This is just ridiculous.
