A couple of weeks ago I wrote that my wife had left her purse in the Denver airport. It was finally returned by United lost and found. Everything was still in the purse except the $700.00 cash. In the pocket where the cash was was a prepaid MasterCard "ready cash" card. We thought that perhaps United had done that rather than ship cash. No such luck. We called to see what the story was. Someone had purchased this card at the Denver airport in the amount of $100.00. They paid $5.00 to do that then purchased luggage in the airport for the remaining $95.00. I've no clue why they did that. They were thoughtful enough to put the now zero balance card in the pocket that held the cash. Maybe it was a "Thank you" card. :confused: At least she got her very nice purse with all the personal information, keys and passes etc. As well as being :confused: I'm :D and :mad:

I trust that you cancelled all the credit cards and changed locks just because the cards are still there doesn't mean someone didn't record the card information to make online purchases or made copies of the keys. Glad your wife at least got her purse back.

Digging into the purse a bit further my wife even found the receipt from the machine used to buy the card. Obviously a very thoughtful thief401456

If you made a police report, there's a pretty good chance that machine has a video log of all transactions, so it's possible police could recover a picture of whoever bought the card. Whether they would actually be willing to do it in this case is another matter.....

or the airport has video surveillance of the person who made the purchase. Depends how long you wish to pursue it.

...or there are fingerprints on the card that the airline could use to compare to employee's prints. It could be that someone turned the purse in to an employee, who took the money.
