Just wondering if Chase is going to shut off my credit card. I went to get a haircut the yesterday and my Freedom was declined. I have made some deposits to an online sportsbook and they recently quit accepting my Freedom card. Like a moron I just kept trying to deposit, maybe ten times over three days. I called the 800 number on the back of my card and was told that the rep couldn't do anything for me I would have to wait for a call from a "Senior Support Advisor" Well I haven't got the call and I forwarded my home to my cell and still no call.
a) Is Chase going to cancel my card?
b) What should I do when they call?
I don't ever intend to use my CC to deposit in my online sportsbook ever again.

Have you checked your credit reports? Any negs that may have spooked Chase pop up lately?
I can't comment too much regarding online gambling with a CC since I've never done it. That itself may have raised concern; there's a reason you can't typically buy loto tickets with a card.

If I were you I'd wait for the call and avoid using phrases like "online gambling" and "sportsbook".
I agree, but if they have a concern, they probably know very well what was going on!
While waiting, check the Terms&Conditions. It's very possible that online gambling is not allowed, or more generically this might be seen as a disguised cash advance. But nothing you can do but plead ignorance and promise no repeats.
