    About once a year, I lay down all my cards onto a copy machine and make about two pages of all the stuff I have in there, including account numbers. I do a front side, then a back side, as the back side has all the "if lost call this number" kind of stuff. I keep these sheets with me when I travel as well, and I have a copy at home. I figure this will also help me remember what was in the wallet, if it becomes gone.

    Downside is if somebody steals the copies they now have your account numbers and the 3 digit number on the back,if you don't notice for a couple days you could have maxed out cards,I would mark out the 3 digit code

    I keep the permit in my wallet separate from my drivers license. I keep my money in a money clip in my left front pocket. If somebody wants my money, I toss them the clip. If I think I can take them, while their eyes are following the money, I'll pull the gun that rides above my right hip.

    There are a lot of variables in that situation. I may just let the person take the money and run. It just depends.

    If he's reading what's in my wallet, he's mine.

    I don't know about YOUR cards, but my credit card has been hacked at least three times in the last four years. I always check my statements carefully. When I find a fraudulent charge, I simply call my credit card company, they remove the unauthorized charges, and I'm FedEx'ed a new card within 24 hours to my home or hotel.

    No worries. I use my card everywhere. If it's hacked, it's a no-sweat swap-out.

    I don't care. They can buy a Mercedes or a fur coat. As long as I didn't authorize or sign the receipt, it's my credit card issuer's problem.

    My card company sends me a text every day about 1:00 PM giving me the balance on the card. Makes it easier to tell if something is going on that shouldn't be.

    Count me as one of those. When we go to the city anyway. I have a cheap nylon wallet that has $14, some expired cards and an old DL (with an entirely different address) in it.

    And I have never heard of an armed robber taking the time to root through a wallet they just got from someone in an armed robbery.

    Just hand over your wallet, Denny Crane style. I keep mine in the wallet right behind my DL, front pocket. It's just easier for me that way.

    Sounds like a good system. However, to me, it still doesn't matter. I could care less if you hack my number and start buying top-dollar merchandise. I am not liable for your purchases. I simply need to check my monthly statement, and call the card issuer if I see any unauthorized charges. The card number is then immediately disabled, and I can expect my new one to be delivered the next business day.

    I have never been robbed, so maybe they all just grab and run and it's mute point (except that now I have to get a new DL and CWP).

    So, CWP/DL in wallet or pocket?
    if you were to be in that situation wouldn't you seize the moment he took his attention from you to inspect your wallet to draw and take out the threat? I certainly would be looking for a chance to gain an advantage

    If you do this on a home scanner, you're fine. If you do it on an office copy machine, you're putting yourself at significant risk of identity theft. Copy machines these days scan the document and keep an image stored on the internal hard disk. All it takes is an unethical service tech to dump the HD and go fishing among all those images, and don't think it hasn't happened. Stick with pen and paper!
