That's too bad. Sounds like someone was forgetful or distracted. Usually people take their wallet in the store with them.

Yes, sometimes the police do nothing. Someone once got a my credit card number and hacked an online account I had with a store and tried to charge thousands of dollars in merchandise. The person switched all the info on the account, but somehow the store sent me one more email, and I saw the email that the account had been switched to. My husband, being a "computer" person was able to trace who owned the account/domain that it belonged to. I called the police with the persons name and address in NYC. I was told they could do nothing because it was not their jurisdiction. I was also told that because credit cards often cover the charges when theft of a credit card number happens, it's not worth their time.

When my car was stolen I asked the police if they would take fingerprints of the steering wheel and they laughed.
