I have had some curious but unpleasant experience with my debit card and want to know if someone's familiar with the problem.
Basically, I got my VISA debit card from the UAE but lives in the US at the moment. Recently, my card has been declined at stores and ATMs when I tried to make payments or withdrawals. The screen says "invalid transactions", whatever that means.
When I called my bank, they said as far as they could see, my card is not blocked in their system. What's even weirder is that the card works perfectly fine with online payment, which kind of proves my bank's point. But it is indeed declined - so who's declining it along the chain of authentication and how can I resolve this?
