Losing a wallet is disappointing for several reasons. Obviously, nobody wants to lose money, credit cards, ID cards or passports. However, the wallet itself can also be a valuable item, if it’s a gift from someone you love, or it’s an expensive brand item. If this has happened to you or you are wondering what to do if you found someone’s wallet, Eurosender can help you to get it back or return it to the owner.
Shipping a lost wallet back to the owner
What to do if I found a wallet with cash? Can I ship a wallet with money?
Most probably, the wallet you’ve found contains money. When you decide to ship a wallet domestically or internationally, you should know that most of the couriers don’t accept packages that include credit cards or cash. Instead of shipping a wallet with money in it, you can agree with the owner to transfer the amount to their bank account while you keep the cash.
Can I ship a wallet that contains credit cards?
Couriers don’t usually accept packages that contain credit cards. Still many people decide to ship credit cards on a daily base by mail or courier since this type of items is mostly not discovered during delivery. Just have in mind that you will be shipping the wallet with cards on your own responsibility.

What to do if I find someone’s wallet?
If you have accidentally found a wallet and want to return it, you should first look around to see if you can find the wallet owner. However, the person who lost or had the wallet stolen can already be miles away or even abroad. In case no one’s around searching for the lost wallet, here are a few steps you can follow to return it to the owner.
By the way, if you find a lost wallet in the US, you can drop it in a USPS mailbox, and they will return it to its owner free of charge.
Contact a bank, if there are credits cards in the lost wallet
Look through the wallet and check whether it contains a driver’s license, passport or any card that can help. You can call the number on the credit cards or rewards cards and provide the name or account number. They can provide you with a contact number for the owner or give your phone number to the wallet owner. After this, you can arrange with the owner directly how to return the lost wallet.
Try to find the person on Google or Facebook
It may sound unrealistic, but it works! Nowadays, it’s hard to find a person who never heard about Facebook. If you know the name and a surname of the person who lost the wallet (from the passport or driver’s license, for example), try to find them online. Enter the name and surname on the social media webpage and contact them via Facebook or email to discuss shipping the wallet by a courier or mail to their address.
Return a lost wallet to the nearest police office
If you didn’t succeed in finding the lost wallet’s owner, simply return it to a nearby police station. The police will then make efforts to find the person. If they can’t find the owner after a certain period of time, they will probably destroy the wallet.
