This letter is addressed to the person who stole my wallet from the counter of the Parksville Insurance Centre on Saturday, Sept. 3.
I’d just like to let you know a little about that day.
I had to rush my 26-year-old cat to the vet for treatment of a serious wound. As you can imagine, taking an animal to the vet, or even a child to the hospital, is very trying and emotional for everyone.
After the vet visit, I had to go to my insurance centre in downtown Parksville. After meeting with my agent, I accidentally left my wallet on the counter. When I realized, shortly later, that I had left it there, I made a phone call. There was no sign of the wallet anywhere.
I am on disability. So, there may have been a very small about of cash and change.
What really hit hard, is my personal information, gone. My drivers licence, crucial, gone. I now have to somehow replace that, which will cost money. And I had to change my banking info.
I cannot drive my vehicle without a licence and living in Errington, you need a vehicle. Without any picture ID, or my birth certificate, I do not know if I will get my licence, or will have to wait and spend more time and money to obtain it again.
I spent a good hour, with a friend, and the help of my insurance agent, checking the street, checking garbage cans and planters in the area, to no avail.
I have started a file with the RCMP and the officer was kind enough to visit the scene as well.
I am pleading with you to return my ID, no questions asked. You could drop it off at the Errington post office.
My box number is 791 — just hand it to my postmaster in an envelope. No questions asked. Please return my ID.
