Reasons for account blocking - idea


#1

Its maybe a good idea, to have a list here of main reasons why accounts are blocked by Revolut`s automated security system. I will start:

  • topup from different and also not verified cards ( why the hell you do that? no wonder that looks suspicious to the system )
  • loading wayyy to much funds in their accounts without even verifying their identities ( of course you need to have a proof of where all this funds came from, of course it look suspicious )

Using your card for the first time when abroad (you receive the card in Spain and the first use is in Malaysia)


#3

Many people use this card only abroad. Because it does not make sense to use EUR card for BGN purchases and pay a fee for the currency conversion (hidden fee or not).

Most people already have a card for their domestic payments and don’t use their Revolut card for those.

it makes perfectly sense if your local bank is slower and more expensive in taxes than revolut :slight_smile:


#5

I am using bank notes for payments offline.

It’s a political protest against war on cash. My intention is to hurt the Visa/mastercard/bank cartel.

I am using bank payments only when necessary and I try to pay the less possible fees.
