A lost credit card can be potentially disastrous if it lands in the wrong hands, especially if that card has a high credit limit. Credit card theft is common, so it is crucial that you cancel your credit card as soon as you realise it’s missing to stop thieves propelling you into debt.

Being alert in public
Always protect yourself against pickpockets by keeping bags and valuables close in public places. Be careful when handing over your credit card in shops or starting a tab in a restaurant or bar. Remain alert at all times and under no circumstances allow your card to be taken out of sight– it is not unheard of for cards to be copied. Known as ‘skimming’, this occurs when data from a card's magnetic strip is electronically copied onto another card. Stay vigilant at all times to protect yourself against credit card theft.
