Washington, DC


“Dear PoPville,

I lost my wallet yesterday afternoon somewhere between the Columbia Heights Giant and Oak & 16th St NW. I am still dumbfounded by the whole situation – my only theory is that I dropped it along the way and figured it out after walking 10-15 minutes. It did not contain any cash, but it did have my IDs, including my Driver’s License from Puerto Rico, which is very difficult for me to obtain a duplicate of, and the DC Resident ID, Health insurance cards, some credit cards that have already been canceled and some pictures.

The police has my info so they can turn it in at the station, send it in the mail or give me [Cristina María] a call at (202) 830-7425 for further options. I am also willing to offer a $40 reward if the wallet turns up as it was. The wallet is a Coach envelope wristlet with the C pattern. It is gray, with black Cs and black trim. I attached a photo of a very similar looking wallet – the only difference is that mine had a turn lock in the front where the metal seal is.”
