I went to the beach yesterday and my bag was stolen. Inside the bad was my hearing aids (from military), glasses, i-pod, two palm cell phones, wallet.

I contaced the police and cancled my credit cards. By that time, using three different credit cards they charded over $1,400.00. The stores that they went to were Wal-Mart, Food Lion, Sports Zone, Radio Shack, We-R-Wireless. The survelience cameras at Wal-Mart have the guys using my credit card and the police now have the pictures.

Has this ever happened to anyone? Can anything be done to the stores that accepted credit cards withou ID? Most of the purchases were over $400.

Do you sign the back of your card, or write "Please See ID"?

My card was stolen once and the perp purchased $1500 of electronic surveillanace equipment.

Your liability is capped at $50 per card for pre-notification of theft losses (debit card cap requires notice within 2 days to trigger the cap on liability/credit card cap requires 30 day notice to trigger cap) ; my card company waived the $50 but that was back in the day before the U.S. financial system was in the dumpster

Sorry to hear your vacation ws disrupted by these creeps

The whole "See ID" doesn't provide any kind of legal protection or anything, but I've noticed that about 75% of cashiers actually check and ask, so it offers some level of protection. The only place I've ever found that won't accept it is the Post Office.

Other than the robbery, how was OC?

I don't think the stores can be touched but depending on your CC provider, they may reimburse the purchases - then go after the thiefs. Hopefully your CC customer service will be able to help you.

Plus having the perps in custody may also help you get things reconciled!!!

I just got back from my honeymoon in North Myrtle Beach and someone stole my hat and room key while I was at the beach. I know its not the same but it makes ya sick that people would do this kinda crap.

My family and I use to make trips out there every year for about 3-4 years when I was a kid.

Grew up on west of B-more hon, about 20 minutes west of Frederick.
