Lost iPod how to remove Credit Card

Lost an iPod touch that had a credit card hooked up to iTunes store.

How do I deactivate that iPod from making purchases?

Thank you,
Shane

I believe your best bet is to cancel the credit card. Then you can change the number on the iTunes web site for your account.

But if the car number ain't shown anyway, wouldn't it be better to simply change the password so the next time the thief (whether the one that committed the crime or the one that bought it later) tries to use iTunes it simply won't work as the password was changed.

But now that I think about it, the password is never stored anyway right? At least on my iPod and a friend's, AFAIK, I've always have had to enter the password...

On my Touch I always have to enter the password. The best thing to do as was suggested is to change the password on your iTunes account and that should be the end of the problem.
