Not A Joke!!
5. We have been told we should cancel our credit cards immediately. But the key is having the toll free numbers and your card numbers handy so you know whom to call. Keep those where you can find them.
We pass along jokes on the Internet; we pass along just about everything.

I especially like the idea of photocopying front & back of all the cards in our wallets so we have the numbers and customer support numbers handy. Thanks for sharing!
|Good to know! on Feb 13, 2012 @ 04:43 pm|
This info is definitely good to know!
|Additional tip... on Mar 09, 2012 @ 06:19 pm|
Photocopy your passport 2x. Keep one copy at home in a set location where someone you trust can access it and keep the second with you when you travel...but keep it in a different place than your passport.
Trust me... I have lost my passport and needed to get one within 12 hours at our embassy so I could leave on my flight for another country. If you have all the info its a LOT faster.

Thanks for the tips. I have a question, sorry if it's stupid, but are the numbers at the bottom American or Canadian? I think the term Social Security number is an American term. It's Social Insurance Number (SIN) in Canada, isn't it?
I'm going to photo copy my cards today!
Also, you should memorize your Social Insurance Number and never carry it with you. I know people who have all their credit card and bank card numbers memorized. I can barely remember all my pin numbers, let alone the whole card number!
|Good Question! on Mar 31, 2012 @ 11:02 am|
I haven't checked these numbers out... but SIN is Canadian and Social Security is US. SIN is not supposed to be used as ID anywhere, so its good that it doesn't leave home.
Here's a SIN link: http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/about/reports/sin/cop/section2.shtml
Phone numbers are there too....
Hope this helps :)
