First, notify the police.  Then, almost as fast, contact the Social Security Administration to let them know.  Follow their instructions.  They might notify the credit bureaus for you, but if they don't you must and also have them put a "fraud alert" on your file.  This will make it necessary to notify you if anyone tries opening an account with your number.

Losing your card is sooo dangerous.  Hope this won't be too detrimental to you.

In the future, please leave your Social Security card in lock box at home.  You seldom need this card every day and usually know ahead of time if someone will want to see it.
