Just something I saw in my email regarding the use of SMS

Take note....
Don't take things for granted...
It can happen to anyone of us....

A True Story:

This lady has changed her habit onthe hand phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag which contained her mobile, credit card, purse etc. was stolen.

Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, telling him what had happened, her hubby says 'I've just received your SMS asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.'

When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff to ld them all the money was already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen handphone 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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.

Moral of the story:

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 SMS, CONFIRM by calling back.
