Sinonseicedge : Today I put $200 on a Vanilla Visa giftcard (after reading all the fine print that you could see on the card, which said nothing about domestic purchases only) in order to buy some items online (internationally, unfortunately) only to get home, open the package (which couldn't be opened until after purchase) and find out that my card was useless for my orders. So now I'm wondering since the card is nonrefundable, can I take the card back to cvs and use its funds to get another card that does work internationally? and what giftcards do work internationally? (visa or mastercard please)



BTW I'm not 18 and don't have a regular debit/credit card so that's why I attempted to use this. Thanks
Nicholas...I did and came up with nothing, that's why I came here. Answers are supposed to be productive and helpful...hope you enjoyed your free points for the useless answer.

KallIlliccala : If the purchase was not legal the sales company would not accept the sale.
If the sale was not legal they have have no recourse.
But you should be able to buy other cards.

fwnoqhvl : You are screwed you cannot use a card to buy another and no international orders on any gift card. If you bought a prepaid you could force CVS into a refund under merchantability laws which state no merchant may sell a product to someone who is incapable of using for the intended purpose and a minor may not use a prepaid card. Sounds like you know what you bought so just use it at local stores and learn from the error. Be sure to share with friends too so others do not get screwed. All gift and prepaids are 100% waste of money

Abinicambicus : Our highschool has recently started introducing iPads to some classes such as Physics and Chinese. The school has told us that our iPads are being monitored on the school network and at home. I understand why they would monitor use on their network but I don't see why they should monitor our activity at my home on my iPad.

My problem with this is that I am the owner of the iPad that I am using. I wouldn't care if they would be monitoring the use of school issued iPads but half the students in the school have brought their own to use at school. And I don't like that everything I do is seen by them; my facebook, messages, emails, websites I visit. I'm also afraid that they might be able to see what passwords I use to log on to different websites.

So I think I may know how to get rid of the "spyware" but i'm not sure what to get rid of. Our school made us install 6 profiles on our settings app and I'm not sure what some of them are for.

Here are the names of the profiles:

1. CA Certificate payload

2. *School Name* MDM Profile

3. Self Service Web Clip (An app that gives us codes to get school apps for free)

4. Visual Thesaurus (A thesaurus app)

5. Printing (Gives us ability to print at any printer in the school)

6. PC install

I only know what 3,4 and 5 are for but I'm not sure why I need the others. I need some help figuring our which profile is used to monitor us so I know which one to get rid of. Can somebody please explain what these profiles do and why I need them (If I even need them)?

If I didn't provide enough information please tell me what I missed. Thanks!
@Fred, thanks for the info. I agree with you that this could be useful to stop bullying or scamming but my concern is that they can see everything I have. Personal notes, private messages, stupid photos. Of course I have something to hide, but that doesn't mean it's illegal. I want my privacy for the same reason why you wouldn't let a stranger search your phone or wallet. Everybody has something to hide, but that doesn't mean it's bad or illegal.
I've also heard of one case in which the school was secretly using macbook cameras on school issues laptops to record 24/7 video. These kids were allowed to take these laptops home for homework and such. The school ended up getting sued because they had footage of kids undressing in front of the cameras. Just think about that, the kids weren't doing anything illegal. They were unaware that they were being filmed. I don't want to worry about a camera constantly filming me even when I'm changing clothes.
@Fred, one more thing. I clicked on your profile and I see you've made it private. Nothing to hide, eh? So you MUST be doing something illegal...

engescues : If you remove any of them they will know. and will cit off your school access if it is your own machine, or remove the machine from the user if it is a school one. The certificates one will probably stop ALL your school access. So would the school profile. And pc install will probably also report to them and stop the others. There is no way they can see your passwords. And why are you worrying unless you are going to break the law by bullying people or scamming them? Obviously you must have something to hide.

LumiaFresh : I've recently met this great guy on Omegle and we were using the 'code word' (aka interest) 'endearing'. Recently we agreed a time to see each other but when it came round to it, as usual it comes up with 'you both like endearing' but now all I see is a black webcam screen for him and no text comes through. This hasn't happened before and I'm getting a little upset as we have no other way of contacting as we didn't share any other addresses or numbers etc. Please could someone suggest something, I've tried changing my browser and obviously I have selected to 'allow webcam'. Thank you.
