I made the mistake of purchasing a wells fargo visa gift card a while back, not realizing it requires a US address for registration. When the site said the card could only be used in the US, I assumed it meant the merchant side, not the customer, and as I intended to buy from US businesses I thought it would be suitable.

This isn't a physical card - it's the card number,expiry + security code.
I've already activated the card by phoning wells fargo - then discovered the address issue at registration page.  
Perhaps I could just register it with any old US street address - but it seems like asking for trouble as I'm guessing certain sites like google checkout would know if my name doesn't match the address.

Looking to trade the card for BTC - at about whatever $20 comes out at on latest mtgox. eg if 2.30  - then  8.7 BTC


Cheers,
Julian

I'm surprised nobody is interested so far..   normally you'd have to pay extra to get a $25 Visa - and here I'm offering it at a discount.

Well..  I'll even take 8BTC

Even if you're not particularly interested in a Visa, for a US resident you could just spend it on that new mrcoins.com site and come out 1BTC ahead!

.. or maybe I'm going about this the wrong way.

For someone who can show they have a good reputation here...  I'll pay 1BTC for them to fill out the form and register the card and put the transaction through mrcoins.com for me.
No risk to the person who helps me.   But please - US people only. I'm not sure how google checkout works - but I'm assuming the IP address should be in the US and the name/address used in registering the card need to be legit.

I know 1BTC isn't much.. but I'd appreciate the help!
