Pay Safely and Avoid False Declines
If you’re like most people, then you probably pay for items using a credit or debit card. This is the easiest and fastest way to make purchases and it’s also safe and secure. But wouldn’t it be worse if your card was declined? It would be embarrassing to say the least! Fortunately, there are ways to prevent false declines from happening in the future.
First, you should always make sure to let your bank know when you travel. Next, check your funds and credit limits before going into a store that is known for making customers wait while their card is being processed. You can do this easily by checking online or calling them directly. This will help ensure there are enough funds in the account as well as prevent any automatic declines due to possible fraud-related activities occurring on your card! And if it turns out there aren’t enough funds available? Well then, just use cash instead of plastic so you don’t have to worry about anything at all!
Make sure not to tell too many people about which cards you actually carry with you. Most people only want others knowing they have a debit card in case it is stolen by a thief. But you should keep this information private so only the most trusted people know which cards are in your wallet.
Don’t write down any of your credit or debit card numbers on receipts that must be left with retailers at points of sale! This can create problems when store clerks have access to these sensitive documents and could potentially use them for fraudulent purchases made online using their own personal accounts. The last thing you want is for someone else to misuse valuable financial data that was never meant to get into their hands!
Lastly, always make sure all three pieces of security code (called the ‘CVV’) along with expiration dates do not appear on either side of cards while they’re still inside wallets. This will help prevent potential thieves from stealing your account information…
