Very good point....Must Read

Be careful how you list names on your cell phone! Be Safe!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 phone, Credit card, purse...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 sms text asking about our Pin number. I replied a little while ago.'They rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen handphone 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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.The lesson:Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.Avoid using names like Home,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, Mum 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.
