    chers amis, bonjour à tous

    je suis en train de faire un courrier à l'aéroport où j'ai perdu ma carte bleue et je dois leur dire que j'ai fait opposition sur ma carte. Y a-til une expression pour cela?

    Merci beaucoup

    Hello, I would just like to point out the difference between cancelling a card and cancelling a payment.

    "Faire opposition auprès de votre banque pour tel ou tel montant", for example, has nothing to do with cancelling a card - it only concerns the individual payment.

    So, for 'faire opposition a un paiement' or 'contester un paiement', I would suggest cancelling/stopping the payment and certainly not cancelling the card - these terms are not interchangeable as suggested in some posts here.

    I would also ask them to "block the card".
