    Default on / with?

    I have heard both of these sentences.
    Are they exactly the same or different?
    1. Have you got any ID cards / money on you?
    2. Have you got any ID cards / money with you?

    Asking about money makes sense, but I would be rather puzzled if someone asked me "Do you have any ID cards on you?"
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
