if you bought anything from BowenDragon please read

If you paid with a credit/debit card please let that company know that Bowendragon had a vehicle break in and their credit card receits from this weekend were among the items stolen.
 I'm sorry to tell you this, I also don't really know the process for this kind of thing. But talking to the instituition that issued your card should be your first step.
And now I'm a catgirl?

My wings no longer had the strength to fly

From my experience, I would recommend immediately contacting the credit card issuer (or bank for a debit card) and having the card deactivated (as the number is potentially compromised) and having a new one sent to you. For situations where you need a card right away, most banks will allow you to go to the branch and get a temporary ATM-only card.

It will still be difficult for thieves to use the card as they will be missing the CID (card security code) that is on the back of the card, but it's still not impossible.

Thanks for the info.  At least this year it's cash only since my friends are paying me in cash for their share of the hotel room  ;D

I usually make sure to bring cash only at the conventions as not all of the vendors take card. Thanks for the heads up though!
