had my wallet stolen, got the lady on video using my card

she spent 300, the cops got a anonymous tip giving her name and address, so how long before cops try and bust this lady, giving that this is her.. im pressing charges she also has my ss card along with my id.. she was able to change my pin number because she all my info like bday and address to change it... I want justice. shouldn't the cops jump on this

Report as

I don't know about jumping on it, as you say. It is a criminal act, but time span comes into play from when it was reported. If it happened right away most states allow for the officer to effect the arrest. Some states require a warrant, which would add time to the action. I would suggest going to the cop shop and check on the status of the case. Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

They don't have to tell you but if I were you I would check the status every couple of days

that's sounds so crazy to me.... that I the victim wont be informed when the criminal is arrested for crimes they committed against me. and im pressing charges and suing for the money she spent .... so how and when does that come.into play?? if im never informed then I never have a chance to take her to court

As the victim you will be notified of the criminal case, but not the actual arrest. Under victims right you are notified every time the person changed custody but criminal impersonation is not a crime that is covered by victims rights. You should get notice of all court dates in the criminal action, the civil part is up to you and more than likely will requiring you to file a small claims action.

It would be great if the Cops and everyone else 'Jumped' whenever we wanted them to, but unless you live in Mayberry - it'll happen when it happens. Btw, did you cancel all your cards as soon as you realized the wallet was gone? Hopefully you 'Jumped' on that.

You should never carry your social security card in your wallet.
