How can I protect my card information or the safety of my physical or virtual card?

It is your responsibility to track your account activity and safeguard your card information. This should always be a paramount priority on your mind. Hence why we advise you to always make sure to avoid clicking on suspicious links and always double check the sender's email if it requests you to provide any sensitive information. 
Malicious actors will often time "spoof" our email by sending you an email that looks almost exactly like ours. Keep in mind that our official email handle is always help@mycardholdersupport.com
Please note cardholder support will never conduct surveys or telemarketing calls requesting for card information and personal information

What if I don’t recognize a transaction on my card?

If you do not recognize a transaction, you can suspend your card by logging into the online portal at https/payaccount.io/login or contact the number available on the back of your card to start a fraud investigation process. Suspending your card is fairly straightforward and you'll always be able to unsuspend them on your own once the investigation is concluded.
