ive looked in the fridge!

You need to cancel your cards ASAP.

With most banks, you can temparaily cancel your card. If i was you, this is what i would do. If it does turn up, you can phone up your bank and tell them to activate it again - saving alot of hassle.

Agreed. PLEASE I am begging you to cancel cards lol. Unless the people are very kind (like me) they will give back without use of card. But some may give back but have used the cards.
Happy to help

if the police had it you would have heard, and i think its very irresponsible not to report your cards, why should the bank be held responsible when you cant be, sorry if that sounds rude but not to good at getting things out without sounding harsh

sassie i dont 'know' u.. but from the comments the other members have been making i know this is just u :)!! i'll take it as a dose of ur tough love and all....!! ok so i go on the net.. i got a MBNA credit card....me and hubby got the same card.. and i got a HSBC debit card... better start gogling. thanks guys

Cancel your cards please!!!!
you might not have spent on them but someone might if they get hold. if you dont use them whats the harm in cancelling them as you most probabbly wont need them in the time it will take you to renew them!

cancel cards asap

Ring your bank and your credit card company - it's no great shakes, you will just have to wait about a week for new cards and from the minute you report them stolen your no longer responsible for any spending on those cards. If the person who has them decides to spend 5K on your Credit Card, then YOU are responsible for paying that because you havent reported them stolen.

Up to you, but I woldnt be on the internet, I would be on the phone.

Strangely enough O/H and myself were discussing shoplifters and store theft tonight and she tells me that handbag and purse theft is out of control at present.
They get on average 1-2 a day and that is in a rural area with low crime figures.

Seems people have got a bit lapse with minding their bags whilst inside the supermarket and I would also expect there are teams of experienced pickpockets/bag thieves operating up and down the country at the moment.

Stay alert folks !

If you can put a temp. hold on the cards, then it would be wise.
Everything I ever lose always seems to turn up in the first place I looked!
You must be getting frustrated by now.
Hope you find it, good luck!

Just cancel your debit card leave the rest they are insured but your debit can be cleaned out and you wont have much of a chance of getting it back >.

cancelled everything...... gonna call DVLA on monday and have a replacement card sent out.... scared someone use my identity.... hopefully all good?!? also had about 30 quid on advantage card so will try sort that out.

i feel crrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaap!

Dont worry, it happens to us all at some point - I would lose my head if it wasnt screwed on.

good luck faiza1. it's all fine as long as you cancelled, a bit of a hassle before you get replacement cards (make sure these dont go wandering) but luckily we're not entirely dependent on cards yet.

Hopefully it'll turn up behind the sofa or something.
Then you can have that one and still shop for a new one

believe me ive checked EVERYWHERE... 4site ur lovely.... ur posts are so funny.... its funny reading u trying to be nice and serious here..... ur right about men not noticing anything though!! :roll:

You couldn't be more wrong, men notice a lot of things, these things are usually their attached to women

Sorry to read of what happened, hope it turns up, stressfull times for you. know how I would feel in the same situation.

Where abouts did you lose it? I was at the designer outlet the other day and handed one in (York). We handed it to the food court staff - this won't be yours because it was last Thursday / Friday but have you been anywhere like this? have you asked the cafe at Tescos?? Changing room staff?? They don't always communicate. I would give it one last shot and ring them again or go into store to ask the staff personally.

Clarty bless ya.... im in kent... lost it in tesco and they say security deal with it.... so i went in again today.. just being hopeful that maybe if someone took the cash and ipod and even the bag (new guess bag!) but had left the wallet (battered kookai one) .. no joy.... gonna have one last attempt and go through the bins... yep i have and am looking everywhere. cards are all canceled... just driving icence left to do... no spends on cards...

Sorry to hear you lost it.
Most people haven't lost it but misplaced it.
I've lost my American Express 3 times due to it being transparent.
Amongst places I found it are, behind the passenger seat of my car, in the office on the floor and in my bedroom.

im still hoping i have warmapplepie....but the fact that we checked the bin bags as well now and its not there... well basically doesnt leave much unchecked.... thanks though for ur support..... gonna take hubby handbag shopping this weekend!
