My bank card # got stolen and....

Someone got a hold of my atm card # and tried to charge a bunch of stuff at newegg. Nothing went through but it looks like the shmoe left the address info in my newegg account. I tracked down the address, and the phone numbers (they don't lead to the same source).

Is there anything I can do with this info? Does any of this actually get looked into ever?

contact the police in the area of that address. and hope it is a small town where the police have nothing better to do but big enough for a computer crimes division.

It's a good thing the thief didn't know that your password is "Bosco".

Call Chris Hansen. He may want to do another report of To Catch an Identity Theif.

Contact your bank and they will take care of everything. Happened to me few months ago, someone took my card # and made more than 30 downloads from software website ($900 something). I reported to bank and they took care of it.
