I think that Bank of America was the first to issue a BankAmeriCard. It was a revolution in creating a plastic payment method as I recall on a show on the Discovery Channel.

John Wanamakers in Philadelphia, PA was the first department store to issue a credit card. Prior to that some stores offered 'open credit' to customers. They would pay the bill in full each month for what they bought. Wanamakers came up with the idea to issue a credit limit and credit card and allow customers to pay in full or over time, but not exceeding their credit limit.

You should be able to do this. Usually the only issue is paying a credit card bill with a credit card.

Since the very beginning, when credit cards first came out, people have gained debt on their credit card. Some people actually have very heavy credit card debt. Going to a therapist will help with this issue.

Call the credit card company and tell them it is stolen. They will probably cancel your card and issue you with a new one.

It maybe related to the credit card processor, or there could be a problem with your card as well. You could ask the restuarant what credit card processor they use, it might be on their POS terminal.

How embarrassing! It is more like a red flag (to you) that you have an issue with the credit card company. It could be in error, but it may also mean that you have met or exceeded your limit. Contact the credit card company as soon as possible to solve the issue.

You can contact any credit card issuing bank with a valid address, identity and income proof and request for issue of a credit card. If you do not have a credit history, the bank may give you a secure credit card which will be linked to a deposit account.

No, a PayPal account is not a credit card. You can register your own credit card details with PayPal and they act as an "intermediary", taking money from your card to pay sellers for your online purchases. PayPal do offer their own credit card now as well, but that is an entirely separate issue from a PayPal account.

First thing you do is call the card 1-800 number listed for that card and report a lost card. They will cancel the card and issue you a new one. Next, you contact the police and get a report and finally you order a credit report to make sure that there isn't more to this.

Call your bank to block the lost card then visit bank and issue new card
