    I got to the checkout at Walmart no cash, no credit cards!
    I checked to see if I had left them in the car but no, not there.
    Talked to the manager and he took my name and said he would tell the cashiers not to accept my cards. No sorry about that or anything. Didn't work.
    When I got home I had a call from both security departments from Visa and Discover wanting to talk to me about fraudulent use of my card.
    One card they got 4 purchases of about $350 total and the other card they got $450 from another store. They were shopping while I was looking for my card! It will be interesting to see how much more they got before the card was reported missing.

    The manager offered to let me call from the store to cancel cards
    but he looked for 10 sec and said he couldn't find the numbers and to call when I got home. It took 45 min to get home. I called the police to report it but have to go there tomorrow.

    I never put my purse down in any store so they got it while I was wearing my purse. I do have the bad habit of not zipping it and just dumping the cards and cash in there. They didn't take the empty wallet so I have my drivers license! They did leave me my ATM card so I was able to pay for my purchases. They are slick!

    Be extra careful all of you!
    :cry:

    They can scan your credit cards without stealing them,by getting close to your purse or wallet! ---so make sure you do NOT have the ones with the stupid RFID

    make sure you keep a password on your phone also...they can scan all your info off of that too.

    That's too bad just before Christmas. Hope it doesn't take long to straighten out.

    So sorry this happened to you.

    Good advice to all to pay close attention to your purse and what is in it, keep it close and keep it closed.

    I work at Walmart and see all too often women who just leave their purse sit in the seat of the shopping cart and walk away! Others have them wide open as they walk around and shop.

    Thieves are out and about especially this time of year.
    They are quick and they are good!

    Sorry that happened.

    I would have call information 411 and got the credit card companies phone numbers right then and there at the store or on my cell phone right there in the store.

    If a crime happens and you leave the location, you'll need to return to the town/city police station to file reports. Call them while you're at the location and they'll come out (unless it's a state of emergency).

    When thugs steal honest people's cards, they know exactly where they're going to shop and what they're going to 'steal'...and as you saw, it'll be done before you report it.

    I hope the matter gets resolved to your satisfaction and their jail time!
