Add Me To The List Of Crime Victims

My wallet as it looked after it was picked up from Delaware Avenue (Angela Stefano photo)

It can happen in an instant and all of a sudden you’re a crime victim. I feel so violated after my wallet was stolen last weekend. At first I wasn’t sure what happened. I wasn’t sure if I misplaced it at first. I tore apart the car, looked all over the house. I even went back to the Transit Road restaurant where I last had it and went thru the garbage can where I emptied my tray before leaving.

By Monday I figured it was gone, so now comes the job of replacing everything that was in the wallet. I had to cancel the credit card, get a new ATM card. I spent an hour at the auto bureau getting a new license. And the whole time hoping that somehow, somewhere the wallet would just appear or I’d finally find it in some goofy spot where I left it.

Then I got a message from a woman who looked me up on Facebook and said her husband had found my wallet. He found it on Delaware Avenue in Tonawanda, 13 miles away from where I last had it. So sure enough, it had been stolen.

How did it happen? Not exactly sure, but I think after I paid for my sandwich I sat at a table and for some reason I put the wallet on the table or on the bench and when they called out my order and when I went to get it, somebody swiped the wallet.

It’s so upsetting to lose a wallet, but a Good Samaritan came thru and amazing that everything was intact….the credit card, ATM card, license and other things – everything. Even some credit card receipts. The money was gone, but I was so thankful to get the entire wallet back.

I hate it that some scum went thru my wallet – my personal items. But I’m so grateful that there are so many good people in the world who are willing to go the extra mile to do the right thing.
