I ring the bank in the U.K. immediately and cancel the card. A check of the account shows that no money has been withdrawn (Phew!!!!) However, the problem is that they can’t get a replacement card to us for 8 days, which is obviously too late for us to be able to use. £1,000 on the card is to pay for our trips to Australia Zoo and Underwater world, which we had been unable to pre-pay for.
After several emergency calls home and to school, I arrange for money to be transferred to another account which I can access here.
Problem solved-but I fear that I may hear more of this in the future. Eeyore, Eeyore.
