I thank you for at least turning in the wallet with ID and credit cards in tact. I hope the $130 you stole from inside the wallet before turning it in was used to buy something really awesome. It had better of been epic since that money was souvenir money for friends, grocery money post con, and laundry money.

I'm sorry to hear that someone dishonest took advantage of you like that. :(

It's somewhat unlikely but there is always a chance that they copied down your card information. I would recommend calling any banks or creditors associated with the cards you had in your wallet and alerting them to the possibility of future fraud on your account. A bank will typically offer to cancel the card and issue you a new one with a new number to prevent any possible usage of it.

Just be sure to play it safe, dealing with fraud is a headache once it's already happened and believe me, you don't want any of it.

Maybe someone gutted the wallet, left it somewhere, and then someone else turned it in?

I'm sorry to hear that :( You're lucky you got any of it back though :/ One year I lost a camera. Backtracked, asked IRT, gave staffers at the information desk my contact info in case it was found after the con, never saw it again :/

Same thing happened to me, and it had some pretty pertinent info in it, as well as my debit card.
Unfortunately, this is all we can hope for in such a materialistic world anymore, I guess.
Did Artie say he was mailing it back to you? Email conchair@acen.org, if you need to.

And if you do happen to find a wallet somewhere- do unto others, guys. Seriously. The world being a better place starts with individual action, no matter how thankless that may seem.

The name? It was 2 a.m, I'm somewhat Japanese-literate, and I can make a mean, cheap costume. That's why. <3

Wow, when you think someone is being generous turning in something like this, they turn around and do that. What a shame really. Sometimes I reward someone for helping me find something (case in point, my roommate accidentally threw out my ticket for the Sunday wrestling event after ACen, the bellhop let me search through the garbage and I found the ticket, I gave him a tip). I'm sorry this situation happened to you and wish that jerk that did that could one day feel how you felt when this happened to you.
