    Those emails are not from UBA, but rather from scammers.

      • Racheal says:

        I would like to get a visa debit card, not a prepaid Visa Debit card though. Which banks do you think are the best in Uganda?

        • KWS Adams says:

          DFCU, DTB, Stanbic and many others. A debit card will simply use the money on your linked bank account. On a prepaid, what you load is what you are supposed to spend.

    I have received a visa card from uba bank benin,they asked me to pay activation fees,then change euros to zambian this real or scam

  11. Elizabeth Erwin says:

    Hello I received an email telling me I had 5 million on an UBA prepaid card and they gave me all the information to log in and see it. It does say it is in my name and there is 5 million in the account but when I try to transfer funds it says I have to apply for a card. The email stated that it would cost me $1,250 to have it sent to me. I see you can apply online but I don’t want to give out to much information before I verify this so does anyone know how I can verify

    • KWS Adams says:

      It is sad that its only you who have the information you want others help you verify and which is impossible. Your concern raises many questions. How did the email sender know that it was you? How did it all happen? Who put the money for you? And so forth. It will be better to Contact UBA bank branch near you so you can verify.

      • Elizabeth Erwin says:

        Sorry i asked you to help needless to say you are not helpful at all. Why bother telling people to ask for help when you want to give none. Shame on you

        • KWS Adams says:

          You are so rude. Nevertheless, I am not a UBA bank staff and which means that I can’t help in telling whether the email you got is genuine or not. Like I said, visiting the UBA bank branch nearer to you will be helpful. Besides, you did share the email of the sender. How do you expect someone to say that its valid or not? Check this post and confirm if some of the contents of the email are like what many others have gotten in the ongoing scam..

    In my country is non UBA but me have a africard visa credit card approval and the africard in my but me received by DHL without the envelope with the PIN CODE withdraw or passcode I receive only and only the africard visa card and the card is blocked in Senegal

    • KWS Adams says:

      You need a pass code in order to log in to this portal where you can create the ATM pass All I can recommend is that you check out the envelope where you card came since it contains all required information. In case it doesn’t, then contact the Senegal bank which issued the card. You can simply email them.

  24. Megan Mestayer says:

    I have really learned new things through your blog post. One other thing I have seen is that typically, FSBO sellers will reject a person. Remember, they’d prefer not to use your providers. But if anyone maintain a comfortable, professional romance, offering support and keeping contact for four to five weeks, you will usually manage to win a discussion. From there, a listing follows. Thanks a lot

  25. Bede says:

    UBA free prepaid visa cards are great. They help you spend what you add. You can use it anywhere including verify PayPal and many others like Skrill. You made the research. Hmm, just for laugh – Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPhone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a YouTube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone! Good work done.

  26. Hoggan says:

I guess for now I’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  27. Sebrina says:

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way! Good work.
