Do Not Carry These in your Purse or Wallet
It sometimes seems that when you look at what people carry in their purse or wallet, we can go back and think of an old Seinfeld episode where George Costanza has this 3-inch wallet. The problem today is that identity theft and health care theft is on the rise. Just the other day, our car that was left unlocked had been rifled through. They found nothing of value, just a bunch of unused napkins and junk, so I guess we considered ourselves lucky.
The fact is, it boggles one’s mind what people leave in their vehicles and also what they carry with them. In today’s world of growing criminal statistics, people need to be much more focused on safeguarding both their person and their property.
Police report that a growing number of thieves are checking unlocked vehicles at night and rifling through your glove box and console to search for anything of value, including guns and wallets! Wow, this is shocking to think someone would leave those items in their car overnight or even at a parking lot. Crime is on the rise all over the world, and the safety and security of your valuables are more critical than ever.
