Can A Credit Card Be Traced?

The process for reporting your lost or stolen debit card is essentially the same as with a credit card.

There’s no way to physically track your debit or credit cards, and the smart chips can’t do it for you.

You could try apps or other tracking devices, but only if you are comfortable giving up more privacy.

Can you see what was bought on a credit card?

If you make a purchase with your credit card, you’ll also receive a receipt showing what you bought. When you use a credit card, you get an online or paper statement that includes a listing of the transactions you made that billing cycle, but not a description of the items you bought.

Do police investigate credit card theft?

For the most part, they DO NOT investigate credit card fraud due to its International nature.

The best thing you can do is to report it, with all due speed, to the Credit Card Company.
