The card had my name on it I had pictures of both sides and discover on the phone saying it was my card.
Surely you aware how easy it is to 'dummy' photos! I wouldn't accept a picture of a credit card on your phone either, or some unknown person on your phone saying 'yes it's his card'. Sorry your vacation was ruined, but you made 2 mistakes - not notifying your credit card company of your upcoming travel and not carrying a 2nd credit card (which had also been properly notified of travel plans) as backup. Yes, we can agree that the threat of arrest was a little extreme, but then we don't know how the conversation went that led up to that threat.
We saw a whole family arrested (actually we saw them being escorted off the ship with all their luggage, with police waiting at the end of the gangway) over a credit card This family had used a credit card to charge multiple purchases at the Art Auctions. When the card was run it had been reported as stolen. A little different from your situation, but they do take credit card issues very seriously.
