Receipts unfortunately just have the last 4 numbers on.  Good idea tho.

Yeah statements are ur best bet

Though if its a site ur already registered to, they'll have it, but maybe not security code...
I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager.

They'll have the account number on it, which is usually the number you need off your debit card to buy things

If you unscrew the back of the monitor there should be a small piece of paper inside which contains all the information you need.

You won't find it anywhere except on the card I don't think mate, I've had this problem before. They only print the last 4 digits on statements/receipts/online banking etc for security because if someone gets hold of it, they could guess your expiry date and then use it to buy stuff online/by phone.

They'll have the account number on it, which is usually the number you need off your debit card to buy things
No it's not mate. He has a debit card, which has a number for the account it is attached to (the account number) and the separate 16 digit card number (which you buy stuff with).

In the case of a credit card, the account number is the same as the card number, and is printed on statements I think.

Ring your bank they'll give it you if you can answer extra security questions.

Ask the last petrol station you visited. If you're quick enough they won't have sent the number to the cloners yet.

Firstly, the card number on its own is no good to you, you'll definitely need the Expiry Date, most likely the CVV Security Code, and possibly the Start Date.

Your Card details won't be on any statement, receipt, nor will the bank tell you them over the phone.

Visa Debit cards have never included the Account Number in them. However, Banks using Switch (Old Maestro) such as HSBC, NatWest, RBS, etc. used to include them in the 18-digit long card number across the front, for example HSBC would be 6759[followed by Six-digit Sort Code][followed by Eight-digit Account Number]. But ever since they've switched to the standard 16-digit format, the numbers are now random (and they've dropped the Issue Number in favour of a start date). A few of the old Cards are still in date but most have expired, so I doubt if yours was one of them.

Best bet is to report it lost/stolen and get a new one sent out. Or pay for it on a friend/family member's card and give them the money.
I think we'd have won the league if we'd sold Keane to Man United.
