Of course I have no actual knowledge of what triggered this action.

My GUESS is that your inquiry led someone to be suspicious that some kind of fraudulent activity was likely to take place in a foreign country you planned to travel to.

Perhaps the surest way to avoid that kind of risk was to close the account.

Let's face it. Banks are on the hook for a lot of fraud. I don't blame them for taking pre emptive action of the kind you describe when something triggers their alarm bells.

I wouldn't take it personally, although I'm sure it's a nuisance.
