For the second time, I have had access blocked to my accounts while overseas.
The first time it was explained that the bank detected “suspected fraudulent use” overseas.
Great! I’d often lived there for 10 years! So why the sudden panic?
No explanation, or excuse. Or apology.
Cancel the account, and issue a new card, which requires a return trip to NZ to activate the PIN!
Now it’s happened again. I’m overseas with no money, or phone, and the Bank in New Zealand tells me through the local bank “ring us and explain”! I was given the use of a local landline to call said bank’s 24/7 collect charge number, and, no reply! To several published numbers.
As the first card is still not working, I’m outta options!
They’d better answer the secure mail soon…
