I called in and asked the BPI representative to block my ATM cause I thought I lost my card! He successfully blocked it by asking me those verification questions. But I just found my card and now, I don't know what to do. Is there anyway that I can unblock my card? If I call in again, is it possible that a Rep can unblock it?
