If your GTBank MasterCard gets missing and you can't instantly find your way to the nearest branch of Guaranty Trust Bank in Nigeria, you can easily block the debit card via your GTbank internet banking dashboard. You can as well get it done via SMS.
Hotlisting your debit card will prevent it from unauthorized usage. I used the GTBank debit card hotlisting SMS service last week when I couldn't locate my GTBank Naira Mastercard before I could find my way to the bank to request for a replacement.

Once a lost or stolen debit card has been hotlisted, it cannot be used ever again, even if it were lost and found subsequently. Thus, if you have online payments arranged with the lost or stolen card, you should make changes with the new debit card details once you have been issued the new card. If your missing card is subsequently found, destroy it.
