On Memorial Day of this year, my wallet was stolen from my car in the driveway of my home. By the time I discovered the theft, the perps had used my check card at 2 gas stations and at our local Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart did not have security cameras in the Garden Center (where my card was used), nor was there anyone watching the cameras at the time of the theft. To make matters worse, the cashier did not verify signature on my card.
This particular Wal-Mart hardly ever verifies signatures (about 1% of the time do they verify) and is well-known for being the worst place for credit card fraud in our area, yet the management does absolutely *NOTHING* to stop it.
The security department in this store is notorious for not being on the ball. In fact, the police investigator attached to my case only works with one of their people since in his words, "she is the only one with any common sense."
At this time, I'm still waiting for my bank to investigate the fraud and return my money. My bank (AmSouth) has been INCREDIBLE up to this point and has not held me liable for any of the charges (not even the standard $50 that lost credit card companies charge).
I'm furious at Wal-Mart and their inept employees who let those hood-rats walk out with DVDs, games and even dog food using MY money. If Wal-Mart employees had been doing their job, the thieves would have been caught and I wouldn't have as much aggravation replacing everything in my wallet.
A word of advice from the police officer who responded to my call: whenever you go anywhere (like a theme park, mega-store, etc) periodically wipe your windows/doorhandles with a t-shirt of baby wipe. This way, if your vehicle *is* broken into, there's a high probability that there will be good prints to lift.
