Yes, but all my cards freeze the account and try to contact me. I get email or text alerts. If I click the link that it is fraud, they then close the account. If I click the link that it is OK, they unfreeze the account.

Or in some cases I have to call.

But never had the account closed and a new card send without interaction with me.


Your experience definitely differs from mine.

We had that happen to us once about 5 years ago. Luckily we had another card with us so it was not a huge hassle. I don't think this is done as much now, since text and/or email alerts are more commonly used.

The same thing happened to my daughter on the FOS. One phone call to the credit card company fixed the issue and the card was cleared for use. She did have to take about an hour of her time and it was a bit expensive to call from the ship but it was fixed right away. She didn't even think about notifying the credit card company that she would be out of the country.

Though i should elaborated that neither have I had an account closed on me, just frozen. What differs is them trying to contact me about it.
