stolen credit card info?

What should I do if I found my credit card info has been stolen?

Calling the card company would be the fastest way to prevent further damage?

    Ask your bank what number you must call in such an event. Sometimes the bank does not issue the credit cards locally, but has a different bank or another company doing that. Keep in mind that as long as you have the right number, even if you get voice mail, you can request for the card to be cancelled by leaving a message. So even if your card is used by the time they get the voice mail, they will reverse the charges accordingly (using the time of the voice mail message) and you cannot be held liable for any transaction after that time (even if your chip card PIN is exposed and your card is stolen).

    call the company, have them cancel the card immediately, and then tell them what charges you are disputing.
