I was unfortunate to have my handbag stolen while watching the Community Chest fun run in Cape Town in December. Careless I know! but in my defence there were no bank cards, cash or travel documents in it. We went to the police station the following morning, gave a statement detailing the theft and were give a stamped and dated docket. I had to contact them the following day to get a crime reference number which I did.
My insurance company have been less than helpful and is demanding a copy of the full police report. Should I have asked for a copy at the police station? If so, others be warned or your insurance will be worthless.
The incident happened near the end of a fabulous trip to Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Knysna.
