@ Benthe,

The Billing numbers are free to call and open 24 hrs 7 days a week, so they are convenient for a fast reply rather than waiting for a ticket. 

You can of course still submit a ticket if you prefer https://support.secondlife.com/create-case/ or you can email to support@payments.secondlife.com  or (if you have a Premium account) you can speak to LiveChat https://support.secondlife.com/start-chat/

If you desperately need L$ quickly, you could try one of the other approved exchanges until Lindex is working properly for you  https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Linden_Dollar_Marketplace

Same issue here, was not able to purchase Lindens.  Deleted my card and went to re-add it (same card).  Got the same message as Michael got.  Added Paypal card in just fine, but still not able to purchase Lindens.   Tried calling billing support just now, and was told that my bank had probably put a hold on the card.  (My account is set up with fraud alert so I know that is not the case.)  I was informed that they were not able to clear my billing info, as they did with Michael, that I would just have to call my bank and get them to unblock it.  (Hi, its not blocked!!)  And then once they do that, I should be able to re-add my card.  So I guess I will call my bank when it opens, to be told its not blocked, and then called them back again.   GRRRR.

It isn't by any chance a debit card, is it?  Those used to work, but were phased out as an acceptable option starting a year ago. Ones that were already in the system are apparently still accepted, but you can't add a new debit card.  Use a real credit card.
