FNB - Credit Card Fraud on a card i hadn't received yet

I upgraded my credit card and fraud happened on the card that was still with the couriers and they had linked my cheque card to that card as well and transactions were done also from the cheque account. My question was who linked my cheque card to a credit card that i hadn't received yet and i was given lousy excuses, no apology from the bank what so ever. I then decided to closed both my cheque account and credit card and I want nothing to do with the bank anymore. They might have the best self service channels but their contact centre sucks. bad service, consultant drop calls and are very rude. I wonder if tehy listen to their calls or if they have Quality Assurance. But hey i'm happy with the bank i choose after them. They treat me like i'm their only customer.
