Prepaid Web Cards Coming: AT&T

Prepaid cards for online purchases, called Prepaid Web Cents cards, have arrived from AT&T.

The AT&T cards will sell in staggered dollar amounts, from $9.99 to $29.99, each including a serial number and personal identification number for online use. For now, the cards are being sold for separate Websites like a Disney game site, animation software site Shockwave, and for online mobile phone accessories like ring tones, games, and images, the Associated Press said.

But the AP added that Web watchers think the big profits for prepaid Web cards could end up being in the one thing that parents who like them as credit card alternatives don't want their kids buying - porn and gambling. An AT&T senior vice president, Kevin Crull, admitted to the AP that the subject of cyberporn came up when they planned and developed the cards, "but it wasn't anybody on my team."
