Sure was..... They will catch the thief. Too Many cameras at the Fd and in the stores where the cards were used.

Damage was already done, credit will be ruined by identity theft. People should be more vigilant and learn to watch their valuables. Try keeping your wallet in your front pants pocket, it will help.
