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 Chase/Bank One AARP visa. I lost my wallet sometime in the past
week and I need to talk to someone about what to do next.
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.

Tips on avoiding a loss or inconvience if you have a stolen or lost card
- 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 with.
- 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.
