Protect yourself: Copy the contents of your wallet

This will take only a few minutes.

Get your wallet out. Remove everything in it except your cash. Fire up the copy machine.

Okay, well, depending upon how much stuff you stuff into your wallet, you might not have to remove everything. But your aim is to corral all of the information you would want to have at your fingertips should your wallet ever be lost or stolen — including credit and debit cards, identification cards, insurance cards, and the like.

Now, copy all the front sides. Then, turn every card over and copy all the back sides. Keep your copies in a safe place.

Voila! Now, you have not only captured contents and account numbers, but you’ve also recorded the customer service numbers (often found on the back) that you’ll need to report your lost cards.
