If we’re not careful, we could end up losing our most prized possessions. For example, what would you do if you lost your ATM card and had no money on you? That’s a nightmare, but there’s a way around it. When your GTBank credit or debit card (also known as an ATM card) is lost or stolen, this tutorial will explain what may be done.
Before you apply for a new ATM card at any GTB office, there are a few things you need to know about the process. Unwanted card use can be avoided with the guidance provided here. Let’s get started straight away:
How to Block GTB ATM Card If Stolen/Misplaced Through USSD
Simply dial *737*51*74# from any phone number and enter the phone number used to register the account along with your USSD (737) PIN. This will disable your account and prevent you from using your debit card (ATM card).
How to Block GTB ATM Card If Stolen/Misplaced Through SMS
It’s pretty simple to Hotlist your GT bank ATM card using an SMS shortcode.
Simply submit HOTLIST and ACCOUNT NUMBER to 08076665555 (in particular, NUBAN (Nigerian Uniform Bank Account Number) ACCOUNT NUMBER).
SMS messages must be sent from the phone number associated with the impacted bank account, and standard SMS rates apply.
After sending this SMS, your ATM and account will be disabled. This would be confirmed via an SMS confirmation from the bank.
How To Block GTB ATM Card If Stolen/Misplaced Through Internet Banking?
GTBank also allows you to block ATM cards online. Affected users just need to connect to their internet banking, tap cards, select “hotlist,” select card, enter the card’s number, expiration date, and other information, as well as the reason for blocking the card. After submitting, please wait for the card to be blocked.
How to Blocking a GTBank ATM Card If Stolen/Misplaced Through Card Calling Services
It’s straightforward to block your ATM card utilizing GTbank’s card calling service. It’s as simple as calling the card services at the appropriate number for the missing card.
For Debit and Credit cards, phone 01-4480000, 08039003900, or 0700GTConnect and request that your ATM card be deactivated, which will be completed practically immediately.
Blocking your ATM card is quite advantageous because it prevents unauthorized use of your account. Moreover, it is worth it because hotlisting permanently invalidates your card, even if it is misplaced and later discovered.
As a result, the bank will issue you a new card, and any transactions or payments made with the previous card should be reversed.
Utilizing simple online banking procedures, mobile SMS using a mobile phone number, USSD codes, and more, GTB ATM Cards can now be blocked. In the event that your credit card is stolen or lost, you don’t have to put yourself under any unnecessary stress. All you have to do is follow the steps outlined above.
