    Apply for lost card... I think there is a fee again

      Yes, you have to repay. There is nothing you can fight against. Basically what you are going to do is to file a card replacement request. Since the original card has been issued, your 90-day restriction has started already if your requested start date has passed. If you get a receipt for the replacement application, you can start working. So look for job hard or wait until you get the new replacement receipt and start working.
