1.Call your bank immediately if you haven't already done so and let them know what has happenned.
2.Install and run Malwarebytes.
3.Install and run a deep scan(This could take a couple of hours) with any other anti-virus program. I recommend Avast anti-virus.

These are the easier steps that ought to have you covered.

Hey man, Thanks for your reply, I've already canceled my card, I have Malwarebytes pro installed on my PC and use the free  version  Avast anti-virus.

my concern is whether by clicking on the wrong emaills or how ever key loggers get on ppl's PC's ..i might have inadvertently  gotten it.

I understand. Very good that you have taken all the necessary steps to secure your system.

However, I cannot help you any further as it is out of my circle of competence. I don't know how exactly you could have got the keylogger in your PC. One way is if you downloaded an attachment from a viscious e-mail, yes.

I am sure, however, that there are many helpful people here, so don't worry, your questions will be addressed!
Cheers! :)
