||This lady has changed her habit of how she lists her names on her
mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which
contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet...etc....was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling
him what had happened, hubby says 'I've just received your text asking
about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.'
When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the
money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen
cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the
pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their
Moral of the lesson: Do not disclose the relationship between you
and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey,
Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc....... And very importantly, when
sensitive info is being asked thru text messages, CONFIRM by calling
back. Also, when you're being texted by friends or family to meet
them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came
from them. If you don't reach them, be very careful about going places
to meet 'family and friends' who text you.
