Got to thinking about the comment "contact law enforcement immediately" and from two experiences I have found this to be the worst thing to do.1) Had my credit card number ripped of once. Found out an airplane ticket had been purchased with it and while I was reporting this the plane was in the air! From SeaTac to LAX. My local police wanted nothing to do with it, period. Called LA police and they had the same response as my local police. Contacted airport police and got the same response. Guess who cared about it, the air carrier who the suspect was flying on. They took care of it and it fact had the person arrested when they stepped off the plane. I know this only because the air carrier talked to me and told me so. They also thanked me. The police would say nothing about the entire incident! 2) eBay rip-off. Basically the same as above. Who cared and talked to the police, the company who goods had been ripped off. I had to go through eBay to get a particle refund but the police were of no help doing that. Other means were used.
