How to Block your ATM card in Case of Emergency

Owning a bank account with an ATM card these days could be somewhat stressful and tough as scammers are increasing in number and also improving in methods of deception.

I have heard about several cases when a scammer calls a bank account owner then deceives the person that he/she is calling from the bank claiming the person has an issue with his/her bank account.

The scammer will then ask for personal information and ATM number, to rectify the issue but because many people don’t know these people are scammers they give them their personal information and in a few minutes, grrr grrr!! (Phone vibrates) A debit alert.

Rushing to the bank at this point might be late and risky.

Many people have fallen victims of this incident and that’s we have put down a list of codes and method to block your bank account and ATM card incase of any emergency.
