Only cards issued by First California Bank are affected

SAN RAMON, CA, August 16, 2013 – AccountNow, Inc. CEO Jim Jones today announced that effective October 1, 2013 prepaid cards originally issued by First California Bank will become inoperable. To ease the customer’s transition to new upgraded products, customers with nFinanSe branded cards have been offered a new replacement READYdebit Gold Visa Prepaid Card sponsored by MetaBankTM.

"First California Bank issued prepaid cards will become inoperable October first, so we want to make it as seamless as possible for our customers to transition to their new cards," said Jim Jones. "We mailed all active customers an upgraded READYdebit Gold Visa card and instructions on what they need to do to continue to enjoy the benefits of our prepaid products," he said.
