    Hi, I lost my wallet abroad yesterday and was wondering what action I should take to protect myself. I have already told my banks and ordered new cards. Is there anything else I should do? Cheers.

    If you have travel it may cover you for the money lost otherwise the only thing to do is to also replace any I.D. that was in the wallet.

    No, I've not done that. I realized that I had lost it about an hour before I was due to leave for my flight home so didn't have a chance. Did you manage to get your passports back? Also, with regard to identity theft how much can people do with a name, date of birth, etc.?

    I probably won't reply unless you quote me by the way. I realised I lost my bag as I was checking in. I got everything back 24 hours later, which was lucky since I was hitch hiking. I'm not sure about identity theft, that may be something the police can tell you.

    Cheers! I'll see what the cops say.
