When I discovered I had no purse and had no idea where it was, I took that afternoon off from work. There was no way I could concentrate on any thing other than my loss.
I notified my bank first. Then I notified the companies of which I had credit cards in my billfold. Next I notified the License Bureau and State Board of Nursing, that my licenses were no longer in my possession.
I had the locks on the house doors changed that day. Thankfully, my car keys were in my coat pocket! If I had a cellphone then I would have notified the company right away too.
In less time than I imagined, I had replacement licenses and credit cards. These actions were very effective for me, and I recommend these same steps for others to follow who lose their purse or wallet.
