ATM woes in the language of your choice

Imagine the situtation. You visit an ATM machine (redundant, I know, but it's what people say), and you put in your bank card, enter your password, etc. At the end of the transaction, the machine does not return your card. You may or may not have gotten any money. That part is not relevant.

When you get outside, you say to a friend, in horror... The machine (just) XXXXXX my card!... What? What did the machine do to your card? In the language of your choice, please translate to English. And if this is not close to the expression you would use, then what would you say?

Thanks! And I  hope this doesn't happen to you any time soon.
