Blocking your UBA ATM card is the appropriate line of action in cases of lost or stolen cards. As soon as you notice the card is missing, you should do this. Most people typically start the process of getting a new card as soon as their old one is lost or stolen.
However, many frauds could occur over that short time and cost you a lot of money. Any plans and transactions that are likely to be carried out if a third party uses the card are nullified if it falls into the wrong hands and is banned. All internet transactions would be prohibited, and ATM and point-of-sale withdrawals would become impossible.
Please be advised that even if your ATM card is disabled, you can still access your account and routing numbers to receive funds. Interestingly, you can ask your bank to unblock your card if it is later discovered. If you went to your branch and made your request, it would be unblocked.
You can also request a replacement card and activate it with a different pin if you can't find your original one. Customers banking with UBA who discovered some suspicious behavior involving their cash and whose information was hacked should block their current card and get a new one from the nearest UBA location.
