wallet stolen; all cards canceled; what do I need to watch out for?
As the title implies, my wallet was stolen a few days ago. It's actually not nearly as bad as it could be, because I'd just recently gotten back from a trip overseas, and I hadn't gotten around to putting all my insurance cards, cash, etc. back into it, so all I lost was my debit card, credit card, driver's license, and some spare change. I canceled the cards immediately, and I'll request a duplicate license as soon as I have my new cards (so I can order online) or Friday (when I can get to the DMV), whichever happens first. I'm actually more upset about the loss of the wallet itself than anything that was in it at the time.
That said, am I at a heightened risk for identity theft? If so, what steps can I take to prevent it or at least catch it if/when it happens?
