I am darn near religious about locking my car at night! the one time in the last six months that I forget and someone got into my car and took my damn wallet! :sensored: They also took my wifes' purse out of her van which is also, usually, locked! They got $20 in cash, my debit card, my Drivers license, my SS card, my wifes' check book, her drivers' license, all of our insurance cards, her I-pod, and a mess of makeup that she just bought!
What a wonderful way to spend labor day! ... by taking stuff that someone else labored for so you don't have to! and on the other side of that coin, spending an hour and a half with the incredibly nice State Trooper who came out to file the report.
I get that you should lock your cars at night! I know that had I done it, this probably wouldn't have happened to me. However, the aforementioned State Trooper informed us that we were on a 10 mile stretch of road where they hit 8 or 9 other cars! Again I say !!! OK, I'm through ranting now.

It's nothing for some scum bag to break into your car, whether it's locked or not. I hope you can minimize the potential damage, at a minimal dollar cost. Be sure to visit with the three main credit bureaus ( Credit Bureau Contact Information ) and have an alert put on your files. Good luck!

As said in the above posts make sure you take the appropriate steps to help keep your identity safe.
I hope they catch those &%$#@#!
Wish you the best

They now have enough of your personal information to IMPERSONATE YOU. They could go and take out a mortgage on your home or even sell your house without you knowing it. They could go out and open all kinds of charge accounts, bank accounts, credit cards... all in your name and your wife's name and put you into financial ruin. I don't think that you've come to grips with what's happened here. They can sell all of your ID to people that can turn your lives upside down. You need some professional advice. Go see your bank manager for starters. Stuff could be happening right now and you won't know it until the bills start arriving a month from now.
Forget about cash an makeup it's what they can do with everything else, that's the real problem now, I've heard and seen some real horror stories and sometimes it takes a long time to go away.
IMO first step freeze or change your credit cards and bank accounts now.
