My brother lost his wallet about two weeks ago and luckily somebody turned it in to BigLots (out by where he lives in Warren) I guess he backtracked and the manager gave him the good news when he inquired.
Unfortunately he "lost" his wallet again a few days later at Kmart and the outcome wasn't as good. By the time he arrived home, the fraud department of one of cards was on the phone. Shortly after, another fraud department from another credit card was also on the phone. The thieves wasted no time in running up the cards...they shopped all night...the idiots even ordered stuff on the internet...maybe they used the address of an abandoned home....the CC company said they had their IP address.
My bro recalled a woman was uncomfortably close while he contested the price of an item that the cashier had to do a price-check on. She was moving around quite a bit...he thought she worked there but thought better after the incident.
There was only $50 cash in the wallet...and while it's a hassle to replace his ID and all the other stuff he had crammed in there, he seemed most upset over the loss of his fishing license and his 10% off card for Kroger products (his ex had an employee discount)
To me, the worst part is that he kept his SS card in his wallet....that's a big NO-NO!
Sorry if I ruined the feel-good thread with a dose of reality...but it is what it is.
I'm told it's wise to scan or take a picture of the contents of your wallet...guess it's much better than trying to recall what was in there.
Too bad something doesn't exist that would make noise if a wallet or purse ventured too far from the owner.*edited to fix an omission.
Had no intention of emulating a MEN "poof-reader"
Okay I did omit the r on purpose
