Most cards you must let them know that your traveling to another place or country, this happen to me manytimes, so pick up the phone and call.  isnt there already a card that has this service already

Apparently we need to pick up the phone and call them when we buy a gift for the opposite sex too (as per the OP).  

I guess when they print the private key on the front of the credit card like that, they need to tighten up security in other areas...

My point though is that why the heck should I have to call VISA and ask permission first?  And why the arbitrary nature of it?  If they did think the transactions were fraudulent, why did they let most of them (including all the big ticket ones) go through and then start blocking them a week later?

When I called to resolve the issue they said that "since I was not a woman" the transaction was flagged as suspicious.  Visa, do you not realize that men buy things for women?

[rant] So if I order some sex toy doll from China, are the credit card guys going to pay me a visit to check if I have a dick? [/rant]

I hear you bro. When I travel they often shut my card down. For example I was in L.A. paying for brunch when my card was declined. I paid for my airline tickets with that card, rented the hotel room with that card, and was eating at the hotel restaurant. Still they flagged the transaction. It's a hassle. A few weeks ago I had brunch in Seattle. Because I paid with bitcoin, there wasn't an authority in the world that could screw with my transaction.

You do realize that every CC company has a policy that says "you must tell them when you travel" right?

If this keeps happening to you, then you aren't very smart lol... Or need a different CC that doesn't have this issue.
Oh yes. I forgot to include that in my post. I am religious about informing them. It does not seem to matter at all. Weirdly, the one recent time I did not let them know of my travels it worked fine. And that was in the Persian gulf.  Huh

Also fun is their dumb daily limits. You can have $200k in your account, but try to debit that last PENNY over $2500 in a 24hr period and they block your card. It's almost like they think their crappy inflationary currency is backed by something of real value.

No thanks, I'll use cash or bitcoins.

Now we just need bitcoins to be adopted heavily around the world and one can truly disappear!

please someone create a reliable bitcoin-to-credit-card gateway

https://www.joinsnapcard.com/

Not really Bitcoin to Credit Card, but it would probably work for  DigiKey online order.

Anyone with a campaign ad in their signature -- for an organization with which they are not otherwise affiliated -- is automatically deducted credibility points.
