3 Things You Must Do When You Leave Your Credit Card at the Bar
Last night, I went to an industry event at a Conference Center in Manchester. This event happens every year and I just love it. The room is usually filled with Radio and TV people who stand around and catch up with each other. I take lots of pictures, hug a lot of people and generally, be the social butterfly that I am.
When I got there, I do what I always do - I headed straight to the bar! Mind you, I wasn't drinking at all because I'm on a diet, however, the bartender asked if I wanted to start a tab. (How many club soda's and cranberry did she think I was going to have?) Anyway, I said yes and handed over my credit card, socialized, had a great time and walked out without my credit card.
Well, according to Yahoo answers, there are some things you should do:
- 1. Call the bar and make sure they hold your card until you are able to return to retrieve it
- 2. Call the credit card company to put a hold on the card in the meantime.....or
- 3. Don't go back at all, cancel the card. Someone may have copied all your information from your card. You want to be safe.
A good time was had by all and now I've learned a great lesson: Never order cranberry and club soda again. :)
