Stolen II - Checkbook

Unknown to me, my knapsack contained a checkbook. The friendly individual who stole my knapsack then proceeded to write himself a rather large check, and cash it.

Luckily I had overdraft protection.

Yesterday I filed a police report, closed that account, opened a new one, filed a fraud claim with the bank, put an identity theft alert on my credit report and ordered a new credit report monthly, along with immediate notifications on any change, for the next 6 months.

I'm sure there'll be more to the saga soon. Hopefully, once this quiets down, I can start blogging again.
