BREAKING NEWS

Going through a TSA checkpoint at an
airport soon?
Be sure and keep an
eye on your wallet

November 05, 2017




Watch that wallet at TSA checkpoints if you want to maintain ownership of your credit cards.
Chronicle staff

(NATIONAL) -- Imagine ending up in a city half way across the country thinking you've got all the credit cards in your wallet you left home with in order to pay your way along on that visit, only to realize those cards in your wallet are gone once you arrive at the hotel.

That's what happened to syndicated columnist Chuck Jaffe recently.

"Shortly after I arrived in Texas recently for FinCon ’17 — a conference of financial bloggers and podcasters — I reached for my wallet to grab some plastic to pay for lunch. The only problem: There was no plastic in my wallet," he wrote in a column published this weekend.

What happened? Well, he remembers he had the cards when he prepaid airport parking on the morning he left and those cards were gone before lunch.

Here's what he thinks happened.

There was a delay when he went through airport security that "left my wallet and belongings in bins on the X-ray conveyor for about 10 minutes before I was allowed through screening to retrieve them."

There was nothing covering his wallet in that bin, such as a coat or sweater so he thinks his cards were "pinched" by somebody who went through security ahead of him.

Then after being delayed (so that a group could pass through screening) he simply grabbed his wallet out of that bin without bothering to look inside it.

That experience is a cautionary tale worth reading for all of us.

After going through the experience Jaffe recommends, among other things removing everything you don’t need from your wallet -- meaning receipts, loyalty cards, department-store cards you seldom use and more because they're all "potential gold for bad guys; the leaner your wallet, the easier the recovery from losing any or all of it."

And know what cards you are carrying and how to contact issuers.
