I'm very wary of purchasing non-official cards for any prepaid carrier after that experience..
Well the difference is that with phone cards, they have control over your minutes. With virgin mobile pins (or any other carrier), it's done by dollars. And as soon as you type that code into Virgin Mobile, and add the money to your account, there's nothing they can do.
Just bought a $60 card from crazygametime for $50, and can verify they are legit.
