It’s not a scam, but I was leery too. I got the card for my daughters 18th birthday. It’s been 4.5 months and she now has a 680 credit score. All the negative reviews are from people who are irresponsible and don’t read. The only negative thing I have to say is that when you make a payment, the available balance and payments received don’t update for a few days. Make sure you read through all the functions under your online account. Turn off paper statements so you don’t get billed for one. Use the card sparingly and set up automatic bill payments. Have a checking account so you can pay your bill. Hope this helps.

You have to put your money in, but it will help you gain the trust of creditors in the future once they see you can be responsible again.
