NAMES IN CELL PHONES??‏You might want to make a few changes after reading this....


You might want to make a few changes after reading this........ .......

Be careful how you list names on your cell phone! This lady has changed 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 received your text asking about our Credit Card PIN number and I've replied a little while ago.'

When they rushed down to the bank, the staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.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,

Always CONFIRM by calling back the person

Also, when you receive a text from 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......... ......... .
