Best birthday present? A stolen wallet of course.

So this thread isn't really to complain about it, as it obviously stinks and has happened to other people before, but to make sure I didn't forget to do anything/check anything.

 

I cancelled the current cards (in the wallet) and had them re-issued.

 

2 cards had fraudulent transactions; I filed a police report, and informed the issuers. They seem to be handling this easily enough, which is nice. Neither of them were able to obtain the times of the transactions though, which may be a pain for the police officer.

 

I ordered a new drivers license, and that should get here eventually.

 

I need to notify my health/dental insurers, but not sure that someone could actually use those cards without ID.

 

Other than that, what might I be forgetting/what else may I need to cancel/get/obtain?

 

Thanks.

D'oh, my mistake, edited my first post.

 

I had the cards that were in my wallet reissued (with new #s of course).

 

Do you think so? I've been watching my inqs like a hawk, and my Social Security # was no where in my wallet at all.

a SSN is not always needed to obtain a credit report. if you have a police report you should be able to freeze for free. I would do it for a few months anyway.

As someone who works in health insurance... it is possible for someone to use your card to get medical care. Watch your claims daily and if you see anything that isn't yours, dispute it immediately with the insurance company and also file a police report on that particular incident.

Ah, I'll have to look into that then, thanks for the heads up

Thanks for the heads up, not sure how to watch my claims, but I'll call them and have them cancel/re-issue my card if possible.
