Curious about Fraudulent charges

Can I request a temporary block on my credit card if I suspect fraud?

Yes, most banks and credit card issuers allow customers to request a temporary block or freeze on their credit card if they suspect fraud. This is a precautionary measure that can help prevent any further unauthorized charges from being made on the card. If you suspect fraud, it is important to contact your bank or credit card issuer as soon as possible to report the issue and request the temporary block. They may also advise you to file a police report and submit a fraud claim. Once the block is in place, you can work with your bank or credit card issuer to resolve the issue and take steps to prevent future fraud.
