Since more than a month, all Curve transactions using Revolut as funding card have wrong names in Revolut. Random names or just “Curve”. I could live with that, until this morning: I was going to pay in a minimarket next to my house, the transaction has been declined.
Here’s what I had in Curve:
There was a problem processing your credit card. Please contact your issuer.
Here’s what I had in Revolut:
Your card *XXXX is frozen. We’ve detected a suspicious transaction and frozen your card to protect it. Review the transaction to unfreeze it.
Revolut flagged the transaction as “suspicious” and declined it, then lock my card until I confirmed that I actually made the transaction.
I can understand some automated controls on transactions, but I can’t understand why Revolut is flagging as “suspicious” a purchase in a minimarket. Is it maybe because of Curve? Did Revolut decide to stop supporting it?
Please give an answer on this because it’s really embarrassing to have your card declined without reasons. Luckily I had cash with me, but sometimes I don’t.
