Credit cards

I've lost my credit card. What should I do?

It is critical that you report the loss or theft of your credit card to the card issuer as quickly as possible. Many companies have toll-free numbers and 24-hour services to deal with such emergencies. Credit card issuers often place instructions for reporting lost or stolen cards on your monthly statement. Follow those instructions.
