Default Fucking Thieves

So I was at LA Fitness in Livonia tonight and somebody broke into my locker and stole my shit. Lost my car, house and work keys, wallet, debit card, company credit card, drivers license, social security card, work clothes and other stuff. And of course the gym has 0 cameras.

I made a police report, reported my debit and the company cc stolen, put my house on high alert for elevated patrol through westland, rekeyed my house, emptied my car out, blocked it in with my wifes car.

I now need to get a new drivers license, social security card, debit card, various other cards, full coverage or new locks for the jeep and possibly some sort of identity protection.

Anybody have any other suggestions of something I may be missing?

Any reccomendations of identity protection services?

I hear good things about life lock.

The precautions you are taking are perfect. However, I wouldn't personally think the jeep would be stolen I think the card were probably the target. I don't know why they would take the keys though? Maybe they went through it on the way out.

I hope this is the en of the troubles am that the thief doe a slow painful death in front of his family.

I just went through replacing my debit card and a visa card last week. No idea how someone got the numbers. I dont use them often and never for internet. Second time in two years I've had to replace credit cards.
I dont understand why people carry their SS card with them. Good luck getting a new number, doesn't happen very often.

Hopefully all they wanted was the cards and any small stuff to sell. Otherwise they now know where you live and have keys to your house and jeep.

Hope they catch them fast, sucks you have to deal with crap like this.

Well if they get a face they can cross reference the pictures in LA's member database and get a name and address.

I honest to god have never been so pissed. I was all pumped up from the workout and would have loved to get ahold of the person who took my shit.......not trying to be a hard ass.

I never EVER understood why people took their wallet in to work out with them. I would leave all of my stuff at home. Just take your ID with you, leave your stuff in the car or at home.

Not to be a dick ^^

I don't know what I would be more mad about; changing out all the locks and canceling CC cards and such, or just having my stuff stolen. Sounds like they created a real hassle for you. That's pretty crappy though. Hopefully they find whoever stole your items.

So, i was in windsor last week and had my car window broken and pretty much had my identity stolen. (i left my wallet in a cup holder, took out to pay bridge toll and some fukc saw it and decided it was going to be his ).
I guess i was ashamed to come here and tell people how stupid i am (really really stupid) but i found this bit of advice on a site and thought i'd pass it along. some of the stuff is silly but the numbers at the bottom i think are worth jotting down (and calling Silver Bullet). If nothing else you will get a call in the next 90 days if anyone tries to open any type of account/credit card in your name. The only reason i post is because maybe this will help...

ATTORNEY'S ADVICE - NO CHARGE

A corporate attorney sent the following out to the employees in his company:

1. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED.'
...
2. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card accounts, DO NOT put the complete account number on the 'For' line. Instead, just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won't have access to it.

3. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home phone. If you have a PO Box use that instead of your home address. If you do not have a PO Box, use your work address. Never have your SS# printed on your checks. (DUH!) You can add it if it is necessary. But if you have It printed, anyone can get it.

4. Place the contents of your wallet on photocopy machine. Do both sides of each license, credit card, etc. You will know what you had in your wallet and all of the account numbers and phone numbers to call and cancel. Keep the photocopy in a safe place.

I also carry a photocopy of my passport when I travel either here or abroad. We've all heard horror stories about fraud that's committed on us in stealing a Name, address, Social Security number, credit cards..


But here's some critical information to limit the damage in case this happens to you or someone you know:

5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those where you can find them.

6.. File a police report immediately in the jurisdiction where your credit cards, etc., were stolen. This proves to credit providers you were diligent, and this is a first step toward an investigation (if there ever is one).

But here's what is perhaps most important of all: (I never even thought to do this.)

7. Call the 3 national credit reporting organizations immediately to place a fraud alert on your name and also call the Social Security fraud line number. I had never heard of doing that until advised by a bank that called to tell me an application for credit was made over the Internet in my name.

The alert means any company that checks your credit knows your information was stolen, and they have to contact you by phone to authorize new credit.

Now, here are the numbers you always need to contact about your wallet, if it has been stolen:

1.) Equifax: 1-800-525-6285

2.) Experian (formerly TRW): 1-888-397-3742

3.) Trans Union : 1-800-680 7289

4.) Social Security Administration (fraud line): 1-800-269-0271



We pass along jokes on the Internet; we pass along just about everything.

8ptbuck and silveradoboy were with him and they are slightly smarter thieves. They cover their tracks a little better.
