My debit card and checks are being taken without my knowledge and being used. What can I do to protect myself? To stop everything the bank charges you money, of course.

I recently lost my wallet, which contained my ATM card and my driver’s license. Although the card was cancelled within an hour of being lost, the person made one successful purchase with it.

I understand that I can flag my SSN with the credit bureaus to report any fraudulent activity. Although I have a credit rating in the 800’s, will this flag prevent me from obtaining a car loan that I will be seeking in the near future? Is this flag something you would recommend even though my Social Security number wasn’t on my license?
