If it doesn't have CC information, what does it have - your address? If that's all it is, then there's nothing to really worry about.

OMG!!! your address AND phone number? you are so fucked, your identity will certanly be stolen.

have a beer and don't worry about it. no one cares about your address and phone number

*IF* it had credit card info on it, then you might have a little concern, but a quick call to the CC company to cancel the card and issue a new one is all it would take.

I would change my phone number immediately. Maybe my name too.
