Lost my wallet in a foreign country. I'm lost and broke, what can I do?



  • I’ve been staying at this locally owned hotel in Lima for the past few days because the dream tours for singles I joined is having a week-long event in one of their conference rooms. I’ve been having a pretty great time lately but when I got home last night, I noticed my wallet was missing from my back pocket. It had all my cash, credit cards, IDs, and passport. Now I’m sitting in my hotel room hoping this is all just a one huge nightmare. What can I do? Are the authorities here in Lima actually going to help me? I’m broke and I feel so lost, please give me some advice.



  • I've contacted them and the police. They're doing everything they can. I'm praying they'll be able to help me on this. Thanks for the help though!



  • Oh man, that really sucks!! Definitely get in touch with the Canadian Consulate in Lima given your loss of passport (I'm assuming you're Canadian). I'm sure they would be able to advise you on this matter.
