We were in our local bank branch talking about our up coming trip to Vegas. A teller overheard our conversation and asked if we were planning on using our debit cards while we were there. When we said we would be using the she informed us that it would be a good idea to call the 800 # on the card and inform the bank that the cards would be used in Vegas during our stay. When the bank saw charges/cash withdrawals etc. coming from Nevada it is probable that they would freeze the account, figuring the charges were fraudulent as per the Teller's information. I never would have thought of reporting to the bank regarding our debit card usage out of state. Thankfully, I now know. A frozen drbit card while on vacation in Las Vegas would have been a disaster.
