You will need to call the credit card company and explain what has happened. But be aware, depending on their policy, they may need to close the account and issue a new account which would have a negative effect on your credit. Possibly they could just issue a new account number and all would be well, you won't know until you ask how they handle it. In the meantime, keep a good eye on your credit card account, check it online everyday to look for charges that you did not make. If you find any, notify the credit card company immediately.
