If you haven't already, ring the US bank and tell them where you are. More often than not these days, as a security measure, banks are requiring that they be advised of client overseas travel, destinations and date of return.

Don't you think it would make more sense to call the bank directly? They usually have an international number to call. "Let your fingers do the walking!"

again, way too little information to be of help, but the most likely culprit is your bank in the states security system blocking your card.

I have the phone number I use in the states, rerouted to my cell phone in Chile. If I use my card, and trip the security (e.g. large unusual purchase), it calls me at my cell phone. I often can clear the block while standing in line at the store in Chile, and keep on shopping.

There maybe some new rules, I can't take out money from ATM, and new rules from my country is" new update of personal information", and a bunch of question, then a form to fill out with the pasport inside of the form. Then you take a copy to some instance (police, lawyer, notarius...), that can confirme that you are you.
This is information the bank is collecting for the government.
I think this is new EU rules, and my Norway the first to implement it.
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.
