Law Enforcement Using Scanners That Can Seize Cash From Prepaid Debit Cards
Quote:Using the scanners, cops can increase the number of roadside seizures of cash earned through sales of illicit drugs. Criminals are kind of like the rest of us: they're not carrying around cash as much anymore. Everything's plastic or digital these days. What is money now? A lot of the time, it's code.

Quote:But the scanners can only retrieve funds from “open loop” prepaid debit cards (Visa and American Express offer them, as do other providers). Any “debit cards attached to a valid checking account or valid credit cards cannot be processed” to freeze and seize by an ERAD (Electronic Recovery and Access to Data) system.
