First, there are things you can do. As I explained earlier, just because a contract is voidable, doesn't mean the kid gets to keep the card. Second, as a practical matter, you are S.O.L. if someone runs off with your card regardless of age. Are you going to hire a lawyer and go after someone over $500? Even if you go to small claims on your own, you pay the filing fee, and you win, how are you going to collect?
