Card blocking in the event of loss and theft

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If your debit or credit card is lost or stolen, you should have it blocked as soon as possible to prevent misuse.

The following information is required:
- Name of the bank,
- account number,
- bank sort code,
- for credit cards, the type and full credit card number.


Who should I contact?

To the free nationwide hotline: 116 116 (from abroad: +49 116 116)

You should also report the loss or theft of your EC or credit card to your bank or credit card company immediately.

What else should I know?

In Germany, it is also possible to have your EC or credit cards blocked via the system for combating crime in non-cash payment transactions by using non-police organizational structures (KUNO). The police are electronically connected to retailers and network operators and can transfer the card data to the blocking files of the cash register systems at the request of the reporting party. This means that card payments can no longer be made at companies connected to KUNO.

The reissue of an EC or credit card may be associated with costs. Please contact your bank or credit card company directly in this regard.

Police advice on protection against crime can be found on the website "Police crime prevention of the federal states and the federal government".
