Cell Phone warning

Something to think about & maybe make a change?????!!!!!

Be careful how you list names on your cell phone! 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 mobile, Credit card,
purse...etc.... was stolen. 20 minutes later when she called her Husband,
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was already withdrawn.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 pickpocket had actually used the stolen hand
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Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.

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 texts, 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 ..

Good info to think about.....

But IMO if he was dumb enough to ‘text’ his wife the Pin number then I’m sorry but he deserves to loose all his money.

If this is true, they need to be beat for stupidity. Anybody who will send info like that over text, email, etc. is an idiot and I can't remember either me or my husband ever having to ask the other what the pin numbers were on our cards. If one of us asked that question, the other would immediately suspect something screwy and be on the phone asking WTH.
