Just a quick one but very important for all other users of Monzo.
This morning I received a new notification on my Monzo app of an active card check. I wasn't doing anything at the time and I didn't recognise the company it was being checked for. I immediately froze the card using the app.
Half an hr later an attempt was made to charge £169.40 to a Go Fund Me account! It was declined because of the card freeze. If I hadn't spotted the notification of the check in time this payment may have gone through. I am so pleased that it notified me and that I was able to freeze the card instantly. Such an amazing feature. I have now ordered a replacement card.
Stay vigilant everyone! and Stay safe
