PostSubject: Food for Thoughts - MOBILE PHONES   Fri Jan 22, 2010 11:34 am

I never thought of this.......

This lady has now 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 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the money was already withdrawn.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. Wit hin 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.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
for through 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.

The government is still promoting the 'ICE' movement awhile ago... seems risky sometimes...

ICE still makes sense... key would be to check when sensitive issue is being asked over the sms..

story is always, "Auntie, i am your son's friend. Your son in hospital, need alot of money now.. i come collect from you..."
