This lady has changed her habit on the hand 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 hubby, telling him what happened.
Husband says: "I’ve just received your SMS asking about your PIN number. And I’ve replied a little while ago".
When they rushed down to the bank, bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen hand phone to sms "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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.
Morale 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, Mum etc. and very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through SMS, Please Confirm by calling back.
Forward this to all your well wishers, so that they’ll be careful too.
