A credit card gets blacklisted when the credit card has been used or suspected to be used in fraudulent transactions.

When a credit card is black listed it will be put into a database of blacklisted cards and when you go to use the blacklisted credit card then the credit card transaction will not go through.

To get your credit card off the blacklist you'll have to contact your credit card company and prove it wasn't used before in any fraudulent transactions.
