I'm a bit scatterbrained and when I was leaving Lowes (I was buying supplies for the build-a-bator contest on BYC), I left my purse in the shopping cart and drove off without it. I realized my mistake within about 15 minutes and drove back, but it was gone. No one turned it into the store - they checked the security tapes for me, but couldn't see anything helpful. FORTUNATELY, I don't keep my wallet in my purse, I use the slim wallet from Flylady.net and it fits in my back pocket, so the thief got NO cash, credit cards or checks and my cell phone was in my front pocket. So I'm very grateful that I didn't lose either of those. The biggest loss was my PDA - it has names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of almost everyone I know and it was a gift from my DH, so I'm pretty bummed to have lost it. I also had a hardcover library book in my purse that's due in 2 days - what are the chances the thief will return it for me? My biggest concern is identity theft. I think my Social Security Card was in there and between that and my PDA - they now have my address, phone number and birthdate. I put a 90-day fraud alert on my credit reports with Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. Is there anything else I should do?
