Last night I was having dinner with my friends and suddenly on of the friend realized that he has lost his wallet. The problem was not the cash in the wallet, or the cards. It was the misuse of the card and contacting card issuers to block the cards as soon as possible .
Have you found yourself in similar situation ever or have you lost your wallet which had many debit and credit card along with other important documents. Do you want solution for this problem ?
Here is the solution.
There is nothing like the shock of losing your wallet or purse with all the money and your Credit or Debit cards in it as these cards plays a significant role in our lives.
If someone steals it by purpose or if you lost it and it goes in a wrong hand then there is a risk that the person may misuse your cards. To avoid this CPP is one of the good options.
CPP Card Protection is India’s first comprehensive Card Protection service for use in the event of card loss, theft and related fraud.
If you lose your wallet or your handbag, simply make one free call to CPP. They will quickly notify the issuers of your cards to cancel your cards immediately, also they will provide emergency travel and hotel assistance to take care of you and help you get back home.
