Default Victim of Thievery

Hey guys, I need your opinions. Yesterday night, when I was leaving the gym, I noticed my passanger side window smashed in and my wallet stolen. Do you think I have anything to worry about? It had my drivers license with my address in it. Another guy on the opposite end of the gym had the same thing happen to him at the same time. Also, how much does a security company like adt or something cost per month?

ive never had this happen to me, but make sure u cancel everything even if u think u only had your drivers license in there rerun all of the credit cards u could have had through your head to make sure that theres no problems with credit theft. also i would call the police and stuff... isnt your social security number on your drivers license or something like that (i wouldnt know still in high school) whoever did it is a dick though. who steals from a gym parking lot too what happens if some huge guy sees there car being broken into and just breaks the person who did it in half

I agree you should call all of your creditors and companies to inform them to watch for an suspicious transactions in the up and coming months.

The comercials for ADT say something like 30 bucks a month i think. Well worth it in my opinion. I would invest in something like this, being a family man you cant go wrong. I had my house broken into 5 times in six months when i lived in north philly. The first time they tried to stab my roomate, its not worth taking the chance and having something happen.

I wouldnt worry too much though, if it was someone who was set on identity theft, they wouldnt be smashing car windows. there are alot easier ways to do that without leaving your home. it was most likely some crack head, or some kid who wanted money or your sound system.

This sucks 0311! Did you get a police report? Also make sure you report your DL stolen at the DMV. Believe me there are alot of things that can happen when someone has a hold of your ID.

Sorry to hear about it 0311. Just like everyone said make sure you cancel everything in your wallet and to go to the DMV and get a new license as soon as you can. I don't think you need adt or anything, but thats your choice. I think adt and other services are a big waste of money. Maybe you could convince the gym to help you pay for damages as it was in their parking lot on their property. Worth a shot.

Good luck with everything.

Mostly likely just a amatuer looking for cash. Everyone has already give you good advice on cancelling cards and reporting to dmv being that these days identity theft is a issue. Mostly likely everything other than cash ended up in the trash somewhere. In the future prevente measure is the best thing. I know theft from gym parking lots are common. I will put my valuable in the trunk and make sure there is nothing visible through the window. Out of sight out of mind. Good Luck.

And yes there is a small discount on your homeowners insurance if you have this system but the discount dosne't pay for the system.
