Out of curiosity, do you know how he had got your phone number ? I'm just curious, as I don't think either my mobile or my landline could be deduced from the contents of my wallet (landline is in my landlord's name, not mine, so even directory enquiries wouldn't help).

It does have an 'in case of emergency, call...' number in it, so I guess someone could ring my parents up and get a message to me.

I once found a wallet, which was completely the reverse - absolutely everything had been removed from it, except £230 in cash. Surely the most incompetent thief ever. I took it to the police station, but it was never claimed so I got the cash ;)

Ah, this was my work number, so it was easy -- the wallet had my University card in. A contacts search (from the front page of the University website) for my name gives you my work number.

(God, that's a point, the poor chap had to negotiate the University homepage. I should have sent him a bigger tip.)

Oh, also, my driving licence photocard has my name and address on it, and I am in the phone book, so that would have given him my landline. He may even have tried that too, but I'm rarely in!

Of course, everybody whom I've ever bought anything from on eBay knows my name and address; and if I paid them by cheque, they know who I bank with, too. They even know roughly what I look like from my eBay userpic!
