    Sorry to hear about that Jeff. I was just at Burlington next to Walmart tonight. I hope they catch the people who did this. Shelly

      I keep meds, wallet, gun, comb etc under my cushion. It also keeps my knees apart. I find that rolling fast, looking people in the eye and saying what you want slows "bad people" down. How exactly did they divert you to steal your stuff?

          KLD - Thanks. Definitely going to get one of those bags.

          metro, Raven, Anty, graybeard, jplw, duge, shel - Thanks. Must be the criminals know their victims are not left hanging directly. They probably feel they are simply stealing from credit card companies.

          Hunker - She was just talking in front of me. Making conversation about what I was reaching for. I was buying a 220/110 transformer and, ironically, locks for my suitcases. These items were on the "travel wall" at Walmart near the luggage section. At one point she even picked up my shopping list and started reading it. LOL. It was so weird I knew something was amiss. I just wish I had reported it within minutes or even seconds.... not a couple hours. My bad.

            abrooks - that is really low. Come to think of it...... this one could have been a stripper in a former life.

              Ugh, I hate Walmart. I went in there once, long before I found out what a crappy company they are, and I couldn't believe the scumbags. I've never gone back... I live in the city, not the suburbs, and Walmart is trying to put one of their stores in my neighborhood. Makes me sick. We're fighting it though.

              Now that I've offended many I'm sure, I've always had some sort of backpack and I keep my wallet in there. In my 27 years, I've never had anyone steal from me. It kinda surprises me. Especially when I'm downtown at the train station or in an airport and I find that I've left my bag hanging open and my wallet is there in plain view. (Hopefully I haven't jinxed myself)

                thats the typical pickpocket routine, attractive person in front of you , distracting your attention, your really fortunate they didnt take the whole wallet, they do that more often than just the credit card. what a low life though!
                another thing is to never leave anything of value showing in the car, even a old cell phone you donut think is valuable anymore, i got broken into last year , they than reached behind the seat and found my out of sight backpack and down jacket , including a new script of cialis
                bastards.. cops said they seemed to only hit the cars with something visible.
                i normally stash stuff behind the seat, however the cell phone was a old out of model. i didnt think anyone would bother..i was wrong

                  Bummer for sure Jeff.
                  It doesn't matter where you go..even to an ATM especially this time of year. If you are compromised and they can see it..you are prey. So you have to be like a wild animal and always be on the alert.

                    Metro, it became too complicated. My daughter didn't want to pursue the matter when they said that it could have been my signature because they thought my writing and hers were similar to the forgery. Ruth, my daughter, got very upset that they would think I would do something like that and said she didn't want to drag me through all that baloney. My writing is not at all like that, not to boast but mine is fancy. I love to use fancy letters lol. So she decided to just leave it alone. BTW, my name was included in her account so I could have gotten the money if I had needed it, I know she would not have minded it. I had no need to steal from my own daughter. I had set that money in a trust account for her when she became eighteen. I guess they just didn't want to pay her back her money.

                    Sorry, Jeff. Don't mean to change the topic.

                      Jeff, that so totally sucks.

                      My suggestion? Where cargos and keep your wallet in your thigh pocket. If you can't get your wallet out when checking out, get the cashier (clerk?) to help and count it in front of you.
                      ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

                        Jeff, check which stores the card was charged at and foward that information to the police. Perhaps additional video tape material can be scanned and multiple charges can be pressed against the perp(s).

                            Jeff--bummer! Glad you didn't lose the money, though. The cargo pants w/pocket doesn't sound like a bad idea. The underseat pack, too. Hope the rest of your holiday is much merrier!

                            Aside to Hunker--the Bangkok Post reports that people in line in Washington State called the police to report people breaking into line in front of them...??? Egad! Now that's what I call breaking and entering! Ha! Toss 'em in the clink, I say!

                              I am beginning to agree with the Arabs....cut their dirty scummy hands off! With a punishment like that, two things will happen, 1, people will be able to recognize them as a theif, and 2) Knowing you will have an apadage removed, will discourage them (but do not allow them to collect any kind of disability or welfare)

                              My morning PCA, found a bunch of stuff stolen by a PCA I just fired for theft of some other things and bad attitude. I am going to be sure it gets around she is a clepto.
                              Disability is not a medical problem with social issues, but rather a social problem with medical issues.

                                wow Jeff, sorry to hear that. Its a good thing you don't have to pay for those charges. I always wondered how you and Crista managed to keep your wallets safe when they were on the backs of your chairs.
