Trip Report Malaga and the lost wallet

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have been blessed to visit 7 continents. We used to say that South Africa was our favorite. We now rank Malaga Spain area as a serious contender. More on that later, but on with the story. Earlier this year we spent a month in Malaga. How we accidently got there is another story. As in many countries, you go food shopping most every day. On one particular day we purchased several items at the open air market. On the way back to our apartment we stopped for fresh bread at a very good, but crowded bakery. When we got back to the apartment, my wife noticed her wallet containing her Euros, dollars and credit cards ,was missing. We don't speak much Spanish, so we contacted our rental agent (Livin 4 Malaga). The agent personally took us to the tourist police, where we were assisted by a very helpful officer. I believe his name was David. Although we assumed my wife was the victim of a pick pocket, the officer made a full report, and consulted with others. He determined that some unidentified wonderful person had found it and turned it into another police office. Nothing was missing. When it was turned in, the police had tried to contact us in our home town. When that was unsuccessful, they called our local (USA) police department, to seek assistance in notifying us. Can't express our appreciation to the Malaga police. BTW, my wife and I have the same credit cards. If we cancelled hers, mine would also have cancelled. A good lesson
