I was stupid and as a result I was robbed...crappity crap.

Posted by   + Show Post

I am sooo mad and upset right now. I did something stupid and the universe saw fit to kick my ass over it. I went to CVS for medicine at 1 am yesterday morning and left my wallet in the console of my car when I got home. Just my luck someone decided to go through my neighborhood and break into cars. My car was one of six cars. They left the wallet but took my driver's license, two credit cards, my bank card, and I THOUGHT they took checks from the book that was in the wallet. We filed a police report (which is how we know about the other cars in our neighborhood), canceled the three cards, and had an alert put on our bank account. Suntrust told us that if we could figure out which check numbers were stolen they could cancel them or block them...something like that. Well either I had another book of checks somewhere in my car OR the thieves took a deposit slip or wrote down our account and routing info because all the check numbers add up to what I have in my register.

Wellll, even with the alert on our account, someone went IN to a branch and wrote a check out to cash, as me with my license and emptied our bank account down to a zero balance this afternoon. The guy I spoke to over the phone put it through to the claims department and said they should get the money back to us tomorrow and be able to give us the name of the branch the check was written at. I am freaking out. Payday is tomorrow. I still don't have a driver's license because I was waiting on my new bank card to get here. My husband has been relatively cool about this but now says I can "clean up this mess" without him. I don't know what else to do. Can they block ALL our checks??

Did you accidentally forget your wallet on the console or do you do this on a regular basis?

I just hope you get to straighten everything out in no time.

The reason I ask about your wallet is bc my step kids do this they leave personal belongings out for the world to see but they do not listen just bc they live in a somewhat country area they just don't see what I'm trying to say...I don't wish them bad but until something happens to them what happened to you that's when they'll see what I have been trying to say.

I don't do this on a regular basis. It was really late and I was sick. I guess I was just distracted. I always lock the doors and I'm careful about leaving stuff out in the open. The wallet wasn't visible from outside the car or even if you were just sitting in the car. They had to just pick my car for some other reason and then go through the console and found the wallet.

I called the bank first thing this morning and they said I could use my birth certificate and car insurance card as ID so I went there before going to the DMV for a new license. The account is closed. I decided to just take the money out and open a new account rather than having them transfer it for me. I was just too uncomfortable leaving the money in there because even though they TOLD me they would be able to identify which bank the check was written at, they couldn't. There is a scan of a hand written check uploaded online but it isn't stamped, which the bank thought was odd. They said they were going to "investigate" and get back to me about what bank this was done at.
