    Lost my wallet last night :-( ** NOW FOUND**

    I'm such a prat, I lost my wallet last night when out on the lash,

    should I tell the police??

    I've cancelled all cards etc and rang the club I was in and taxi I used to get home but no luck, think my chances of getting it back are 0. lol

    *****************************

    Just got a call and my wallet has been given in to "york tourist information centre"

    how random is that????? i live near Chester, its over 2 hours away.

    how it ended up there i'll never know!

    they are going to post it to me, minus the cash inside of course!

    do i need to ring the police and report that ive found it?

    Yeah report it, some lovely person might hand it in, you never know!

    My son handed in a wallet he found, complete with credit cards and cash.
    Owner never even said thank you!

    so you must have had it in the taxi if you paid him, he's probably got it

    unless they "came to an arrangement":whistling:

    report it, because if your cards were used you will need a cad number from the police

    Yeah and the police will probably steal it.

    Bloody pigs!

    Yep as someone said above phone the taxi people and offer a reward, happen to my other half there a few weeks ago when he lost his phone in the taxi, and only got it back after a reward was offered!

    just rang the police and reported it,

    didnt know that in Wales there is a non-emergency number 101 to report incidents like that.

    i got home and when i looked for money to pay the taxi i couldnt find my wallet, but i paid for food from a takeaway so im guessing its in the takeaway.

    any case i dont think i have a chance of getting it back :-(

    its just gutting that for two weeks I'll have no cards or anything.

    Ewww, I didn't know you were from Wales

    Yea, you should phone the police just in case, where I work we are always getting mobile phones/wallets handed in or finding them down the sofas! it's surprising at the amount of people who don't bother to collect there items or even realize they have lost them! :w00t:

    I lost my wallet at uni last year and had about £30 in it with notes and coins, got it back minus the cash!

    lol i know what you mean.

    Might be worth trying to remember what pubs / clubs you went to.

    When I worked in a pub things were handed in all the time.

    i rang and asked but they said nothing was handed in, o well, a lesson well learnt, next time just take one bank card and cash thats it lol

    I handed in a lost wallet to the police and got a call the next day to say the guy had left me a £20 reward. I was so chuffed to bits. Then I found out he had a winning lottery ticket in the wallet - big win too!

    He wons thousands and thousands so a £20 reward was stingy!! lol :w00t:

    I once dropped my wallet but didn't realise until a week or so later when all my credit and debit cards were sent back to me (By the bank) because some f***** had been tapping random numbers in the cash point and the cards got swallowed! That was before cash machines had cameras in...
