Take Inventory of What's in Your Wallet


Gold Feedback Medal for All Time! 690 Feedbacks

Take a wallet inventory. Empty the contents of your wallet and photo copy it all. If your wallet is lost or stolen you have all the information in one place. Copy front and back of credit/debit cards. Do not carry your social security card or birth certificate with you. They're both legal forms of ID and can be assumed and a nightmare to replace.

If your wallet is lost or stolen, call your bank first, then credit card companies, etc.

Yeah! thumbs way up. I've always imagined what a nightmare it'd be to lose my purse or wallet - I think I'll do this tonight. :) Thanks for sharing!

lol - I voted for this a few days ago and didn't even realize who sent it in! It's a really good tip, thank you.

I did this myself. I experienced the nightmare one poster referred to of losing one's wallet not once but twice. I had my mini van broken in to where I had stupidly forgotten my purse and just taken my keys and then had my wallet stolen out of my purse at a restaurant. After the first time, I had at least cut way back on what I carried in my wallet so I could remember what was in it.

I took my license and a couple credit cards, ATM card and insurance card and put on the scanner. I printed a nice copy on card stock and it stays in a file cabinet.

I am hoping with the measures I take to now keep my purse and wallet safe, I won't be dealing with the issue again.

The only thing I would add is this (I know I'm paranoid but might be something to keep in mind): A few years ago one of the news magazine did an article about copy machines. They found that the drums from old machines could be used to find identity information for ID theft along with other so called secure information that could be used illegally.

I would urge you to copy your information on your own printer/scanner and then remove the old drum before you dispose of it... I know "paranoid", but also realistic.
