Be careful with this stuff! A friend found a wallet in the bathroom stall at the Home Depot. It contained no cash, just a drivers license and other ID. He turned it in and then got investigated and accused of being the thief. Apparently there had been a good deal of cash in it before he found it.
We are in a different world these days. My credit card has never been out of my possession or sight. In the last year my credit card account has been closed 4 times now and the numbers had to be changed and re issued because some creep was attempting to use my numbers. I don't know how they do it but it seems that some store employee where I use my card is gathering numbers and either trying to fake them or selling the numbers to those who do. We have a fairly standard weekly shopping routine and don't use our card outside of this routine much at all. Fortunately we have good protection with the credit card but for those who use a bank Debit card you might want to re think this activity as they are not nearly as secure and are linked directly to your bank accounts.
I get scam emails almost daily Phishing for my information and I am pretty sure you do too. The first thing I do every day when I turn on my computer is go to spam and delete it all and then I check emails and if I don't know the sender I delete them too.
