This is a really crappy thing to have happened.  Sorry you’ve got to replace everything.  This is why I made sure our contents insurance covers us for thefts outside the home, although it’s sad that you have to do that.

Specifically for the phone, have you checked if your homeowners or renters insurance covers replacement for theft outside the home? I know things like golf clubs would be covered if they were stolen from your car but usually there is a deductible of at least $500 so it may not even be worth the claim.

OMG, that sucks so much. Please make sure to change the locks on your house. At least you will get some peace of mind, and be able to sleep.

Check with your car insurance company. Some companies consider having your keys stolen as partial auto theft, since they are critical to operating your car.

Did you look up “find my iphone”? It will show you on google maps where your phone is exactly…It also lets you erase what is on your phone.

I am very sorry that this bad thing happened to you.

That being said, your LIFE was not stolen from you. It was just your purse. There is nothing that you mentioned that cannot be replaced. Yes, it will take time. It will take money. There are so many irreplaceable things in one’s life that you cannot get back with either time nor money. Focus on those things and be greatful.

It was a violation. It could leave you feeling vulnerable, don’t let it.  Focus on this amazing life you are building.

Change your locks. Be safe.

I have had this happen to me more than once, and I KNOW it is a huge pain.  I really hate that for you, as no one should have to go through this!  I hope you get everything resolved very soon.  *HUGS!*

@Leonard2B:  Aw that sucks. Crappy world we live in when my never-let-anything-out-of-my-sight-for-even-a-second paranoia is warranted. Ugh.

Could you get some extra security at your house? Change the locks?

Sorry, that sucks.  That’s why I usually wear pants when we go out and put my cards and phone in my pockets instead of carrying a purse.  Also, when I do carry a purse I never set it down.  I am paranoid about this happening to me and I really don’t trust people.  Sadly, with the camara issue, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone working at the bar knows about that and took your things.

And definitely change the locks on your house since they have your address and keys.  Might also want to consider having keys to car redone as well since they have your address and the car keys.  Do you have a garage door opener in your car?  Make sure to take it out if you don’t re-key your car.  We had a group of people getting into houses by stealing the garage door openers out of their cars and then entering the house through the garage door.  Ugh.  That thought alone makes it suck worse.

Yeah, it’s gonna be a pain in the ass to get everything straight, but in the grand scheme of things, it was just your purse, not your life.

My mother’s wallet was stolen at my first wedding. How bad is that?! But it really didn’t take long for her to get everything “fixed.”

And criminals are smart. I had a friend who was out to eat with 6 people. She had her purse on the floor between her feet, and it was still stolen. With 6 other people there. Nobody saw anything, and she didn’t feel it being slid out from between her feet. So you can’t ever be too careful, that’s for sure!

I hope you get it all taken care of quickly.
