Who do you call when you loose your credit card?
Here is an email that we constantly receive here at
Banklady.com regarding lost or stolen credit cards:
I have a Bank One AARP visa. I lost my wallet sometime
in the past
week and I need to talk to someone about what to do
Thank you, Alice
You want to immediately contact Bank One directly at
1-877-999-3872 or contact your credit card issuer.
Alice then wrote back with another problem that when
she calls Bank One she gets the prompt to enter your
account number. If you come across this problem just
keep entering numbers or press zero and hope for a real
person to come on soon to help you with your problem.
A few numbers to call if your credit cards are lost
or stolen are as follows:
- Chase Visa or Mastercard: 1-800-432-3117
- Discover Card: 1-800-DISCOVER or 1-800-347-2683

contact the Visa Global Customer Assistance Service
using our worldwide network of toll-free telephone

the toll-free emergency number for your destination

Theft & Credit Reports
- Write down all the numbers on the back of your
card to keep somewhere else besides your wallet. Preferably
keep those numbers in a online notepad you can usually
find on MSN or Yahoo.
- Send yourself a email before you travel stating
your credit card numbers/phone numbers to contact,
travelers check numbers, drivers license number, and
any other information you could use if your entire
wallet is stolen or lost.
- Always keep a credit card in your home or hotel
besides the ones you take out with you to go shopping
- Never give your credit card numbers out by telephone
or email if you did NOT initiate the call. Sometimes
people call you up and try to get numbers or information
from you posing as a popular company.
