My bank being The Halifax bank have for a reason stopped payments

Customer Question

My bank being The Halifax bank have for a reason stopped payments on my debit card. I have been on the phone to them but they would not give reason or switch card back on. Thr only explanation they would give was to call in at a branch and they would sort it. The problem for me is that I am in Nogombo, Sri Lanka and I informed them of this before leaving the UK. Can you suggest a solution to this problem as I will run out of funds very soon. Yours Sincerely
John Stafford
