Lost My Discover Card

July 26, 2008 by Lulu in Credit Cards with 5 Comments

I am so mad at myself right now. I used my Discover card on Tuesday and forgot to put it back in my wallet. Then on Wednesday I got to the store and did not have the card to shop with.

I had to end up calling Discover to have the card cancelled and order a new one.

The new card will take about a week to get here but I am annoyed. The thing is that if I really did lose it outside of the house then someone can see my name and signature. I will be getting a new account number but just the fact that the old information is out there is disconcerting.

I think the card is lost somewhere in the apartment because I remember using it in front of the comuter to renew a subscription, but cannot find the subscription paper or the card.

If I find the card in the apartment I will be very happy to get it….and then I will kick it across the room for hiding from me.

    Ack..that totally sucks! I hope it turns up…at least for safety reasons!

    Yes I hope I find the card too…but I guess it is not as big a deal as I am making it out to be since the card has already been cancelled and I have a new account number with Discover.

    Yeh at least you realized it fast whew! Just in case, check your online billing extra carefully the next few days.

    It’s a frightening thing to loose your credit card. At least nobody found it and used it. Did your card have fraud protection? If you loose a credit card are you responsible for any fraudulent activity?

    @ Sharon
    I got a new number and I have some fraud protection. The old card was paid off at the time I lost it and the new card is already in effect.

    I still have not found the old card but I am just glad that all my information is no longer active on it.
