How to cancel a debit card if it's lost or stolen
Consumers use debit cards for automatic payments as an easy, hands-off way to get bills paid on time without adding to a credit card balance. Debit cards issued by your bank typically rely on your checking or savings account for funding, although some debit cards receive funding through a prepayment arrangement between you and the card issuer. Normally, if you cancel a card before the date of the automatic payment, the card issuer will not honor the payment.
