What To Do?

Recommended Posts

Having recently gotten a job as a part-time cashier at Harris Teeter, I went to the bank with my dad today to open a checking account. We opened the account and left.

My dad had brought my passport and my Social Security card. when we got home, he realized that he only had the passport.

We searched EVERYWHERE- The forms I had gotten from the bank, the car, around the car, in our pockets, the whole bottom floor of our house, and my dad went back to the bank and looked around the parking lot. The bank was closed at that point so my dad had to rely on the word of the employees that it wasn't where we were sitting. I am FREAKING OUT.

I'm pretty sure thats all someone needs to steal my identity. :cry3:

You dad lost your ss card, better punish him and take his beer away!

I hope you guys find it, a social security card number and mothers maiden name are two biggest factors for indentity theft. Maybe a Good Samaritan will find it and drop it in a mailbox

I use my mums and my great grandmums maiden names. They are both Ukranian. My great grandmums is as hard to pronounce as it is to spell.

praying for that.

Might I recommend Saint Anthony's prayer? It tends to help. Make sure you concentrate and clear your mind when you say it.

I usually just talk. Hopefully I'll have some good luck and it'll turn out in my dad's car somewhere he couldn't check without moving the seat or other stuff. That's the only place it could disappear.

In all honesty. I wouldn't sweat it too much. As young as you are you ain't got an identity to steal.

Kinda similar to myself, in which the thief would probably get mad. Cause my destroyed credit ain't gonna get them a loan or card good for more than five cents.

If it ain't in the car, ain't in the paperwork, then its probably in possession of whoever helped yall open the account. Just relax (I know easy for me to say) and wait till the morning. It will turn up. Things have a way of working themselves out.

Too bad neither of you had been drinking, then it would be in the dirty laundry basket. I have found my wallet there on many occasions. Now I know right where to look. If it isn't there, then I get freaked out.

As mentioned above, at your age, you have no identity to steal.  It's quite easy to apply for a different SS card with a different number.  I'll let you Google it.

Go to the Social Security administration office first thing in the morning and tell them what happened. They should be able to help you get a new card and number before anyone can do any damage with the one that is missing. At the very least, I would think that they can flag your number in case anyone tries to use it. Like other people have said, you are super young and don't even have enough credit to wreck at this point. It is most likely in the possession of your bank teller, if not someplace you haven't looked yet (check every square inch of your wallet, I know mine got stuck to my license when I had to carry it once). Remember, while there are bad people in this world, they are completely outnumbered by the good ones.

Also, do you know how you would go about using someone's ssn number against them without also having a driver's license or any other information about them? I know I wouldn't even know where to start, and neither would the vast majority of other people. I understand that there are those who can easily do it, but they are few and far between, so the odds are decisively in your favor.

I know it will be hard, but try to get some sleep tonight and don't run through all the "what if's " in your head. Jump your hurdles as they come and don't focus too hard on the things that haven't happened yet.

I wouldn't worry to much but if you are worried contact the three major credit agencies and have them put a fraud flag on your account.  What this does is it doesn't allow anybody to apply for pretty much anything without it triggering either a fail or a call from wherever they are applying.

 

The other thing to remember is if you are under 18 you cannot get a credit card or a loan or a bank account for that matter without being 18 or having an adult on the account as well.  Most banks if they see a minor account with an adult that doesn't have the same address or last name it will throw up a flag for further research.  They will then proceed to do a bunch of research to validate who you are using a bunch of tools that the public do not have access to. 

 

Overall i wouldn't worry to much but you can always join up creditkarma.com or creditsesame.com and they will keep you notified of any new accounts being applied for in your name.

 

Hopefully it turns up and you don't have to worry about it :)

We couldn't find it. We got a program that lets us know if any activity is done with the card. If it isn't us we press a button and the card gets locked out. I can't get a new number so I'm stuck with using this program he rest of my life because my dad is an imbecile.

That's unfortunate - but the disrespect you've directed towards your father is misguided.  

 

If you are mature and responsible enough to be hired part-time as a cashier at Harris Teeter, where you are responsible for someone else's money, you can certainly accept responsibility for and keep track of your own personal documents. 

 

Experience in life is just a long list of things we learn; sometimes the hard way.

Don't bad mouth you pops like that. He ain't have to take you to the bank in the first place. It makes you sound like a spoiled brat. Not saying you are. Just saying that's what you sound like when you do it. That man sacrifices for you and takes time out of his day to help you out. The least you can do is act grateful towards him. To hell with the fact your SS card was lost. Get a replacement card. You have no credit or identity to steal. No one is going to sit on that SSN for however many years until you do. Forget about it and move on. People make mistakes. You probably have to.

Good -  Very Glad to hear that's the case. 

 

 And remember that whenever you point a finger, there are 3 more pointing back at you.
