Do Not Disclose Relationship on Cells!!

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 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money was already withdrawn.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Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.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 through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.  Also, when you 
get 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.

I never thought about THAT!  As of right now, I no longer have 
“home” named on my cell phone.
