You're not wrong! It reminds me that my Visa card company, who shall remain nameless but they are one of the big ones, are utter muppets.
When I was in Cornwall at the beginning of August, I had my card refused for a £40 bill - I was soooo embaressed but also concerned becasue I knew I was nowhere near the barmey credit limits these companies dish out. Out comes the cash and I dashed to the car to phone them.
"We've put a temporary stop on the card because there are a couple of transactions that we wanted to check with you and you haven't contacted us to confirm them".
What transactions, how do I know I should contact you?
"We've written to you!"
Doohh!! I'm on holiday, why haven't you phoned me? Utter plonkers.
To show how ludicrous the situation really is, whilst in Spain a couple of weeks later I used the same card twice in Cash machines to withdraw 400 Euros at a time with no problem at all - if that isn't a potential fraud job I don't know what is.
