A block is a restriction on the use of credit and debit cards. It can be imposed by a merchant, bank, or other financial institution. A block may be temporary or permanent. A temporary block may be put in place for security reasons, such as when there is suspicion of fraudulent activity. A permanent block may be due to insufficient funds, default on payments, or other reasons.
