    My car was stolen in 2014. My social security card was stolen as well. It was a white 1994 Acura Integra. The last location it was located in was Victoria, Texas. I even remember my SSN as well. I\’m happy to prove it. I have my birth certificate and birthplace as well. I genuinely want to get the situation resolved and get the thief taken into custody. I appreciate it, thank you. The first three letters of the license plate were CMU. It was stolen in Jacksonville, Florida. That\’s where I\’m located now.
