    Some of those commenting are suggesting the victims are responsible for the theft of their credit and ATM cards. While it may not be politically correct I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that the thief should be some small portion of blame.

    Of course if the Devil made him do it ......

    So, they want others to learn from their story? Why didn't they learn from the untold amount of stories in the past? I'm sure there will be more like them.

    Totally silly story. I'm surprised it was even written. First, why didn't they cancel all of their cards and such the same day the bag went missing. This could have prevented the mishaps from the second day. Aren't we all smart enough to not leave valuables unattended even at church let alone keeping all of our PINS and passwords with it????

    This type of naivete is the same reason you see so many very small kids wandering around with nary an adult in sight. Too many parents think that b/c they live in "Zion", nothing bad will ever happen. It's the same reason affinity fraud is epidemic here. People are way too trusting.

    I guess it all depends. . .

    Seriously, "We've learned a lot from it, which is good for the future, but we don't want to have anybody else learn this way," Daniel Jenson said.

    Pretty sure that no one will "learn this way" as the possibility would be extremely remote of another human smart enough to open a bank account to also be dumb enough to carry around a list of passwords and PINs with their bank cards. How is that even possible in this world of instant information? And to think these victims of their own stupidity have procreated.

    Really good lesson here....don't keep your passwords and pin numbers in your wallet. I mean, aside from the lesson of not trusting anyone, even people at your church. That said, I'm glad they caught the thief.

    Who writes down their passwords and keeps them in something they carry around with them?

    Leaving that in a free-access public building of ANY kind, is careless.
    Publicizing this story is, hopefully, educational to others.
