WHAT’S IN YOUR WALLET?
by John Rudy
Summer tends to be peak travel time, so here’s a tip about safeguarding your wallet–at home or abroad.
I suspect that few of you know exactly what is in your wallet, so if it is stolen or lost, you might have a problem. But even if you know what cards you have there, do you know the card numbers and you how to contact the organizations so that they can be frozen?
The solution is a small spreadsheet:
|Card Description||Card Number||Contact email||Contact Phone|
Then, put it in a place so that, if the wallet is stolen (even in Europe), you can get to the data. I will leave that part up to you!
