About 6 months ago, my bank adopted this policy to protect debit card users, looks good on paper but a disaster in real life.
Basically is you do ANYTHING out of the ordinary, the card is totally shut down.
What did I do today? Bought gas in a town I’ve never been to, and bam, card shut down. Being it’s a bank holiday and I can’t reactivate it, I’m totally screwed and day is wasted.
I have already decided that tomorrow I’m switching to a different bank.
Question is; can I charge the bank for screwing things up. All totaled I’m out several thousand.
Obviously I could send them a bill, but what are the odds of payment?
