Replace Your Card

Once you report fraudulent charges the next step is to replace your card in order to prevent more fake charges. Your bank or credit card provider will assist you with getting a new card. Don’t forget to update your new card information with any companies or billing services connected to your card. Since your card may be attached to billing services try to limit card replacements to when they are lost, stolen or in the event of a breach.
