Yes you most assuredly should report this to the police.

Report this also to your province's Ministry of Transportation.

And of course to the bank if they don't know.

And the police and bank may ask you to make further reports as well.

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
