Will there be any harm to my score if I report theft of my credit card?




I don't think reporting of a theft of credit card will affect your credit scores in a negative way.

Hi!
Welcome to the forums!
I am guessing you are talking about identity theft. If you report identity theft to card company or police department, then it won't make a negative impact on your credit score. However, your credit score may drop due to the misuse of your credit card by the scammers.

True. Your loss should be reported immediately! If your card continues to be misused, then you might get yourself into a debt burden.
