Default Credit Cards

If you leave your credit card behind in a shop.. do they hold on to it waiting for you to pick it up or do they send it on to a bank?

Thanks

In the UK they would normally return it to the nearest branch, in Egypt...who knows? My advice would be to call the bank ASAP and cancel the card as lost

Dont really want to do that.. I am only liable for 50 sterling if my card is used illegally. I will keep trying to find it as getting a new one here is going to be a problem.

If it's a UK card then I very much doubt the shop would send it onto a bank

Could it be at the bottom of your handbag? or in your coat pocket?

I blame everyone for "moving my stuff" as I always misplace mine or anything else, normally found in my wallet with a receipt / warranty folded over it or stuck to another card, hope you find it

Recently they are asking for an ID if I am paying with debit or credit card at Carrefour (Dandy mall) and Spinney's (Mall of Arabia).
