A lady has changed her habit of how she lists her
names in her cell phone directory after her handbag was
Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit
card, purse, etc., was stolen.
Twenty minutes later she called her husband, from a pay
telephone telling him what had happened.
Her husband said, ‘I have just received your text message
asking about our pin number and I replied a little while ago.’
When they rushed down to the bank, the staff told them all
the money was already withdrawn.
The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text
her husband listed in the directory and got a hold of their
pin number.Within twenty minutes he had withdrawn all the  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
on your call list.
Avoid using names like Home,Honey,Hubby,Sweetheart,Mom,Dad
And very importantly, when sensitive information is being
asked for through text messages, CONFIRM by calling back.
Also, when you are being text by friends or family to meet
them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the
message came from them.
If you do not reach them, be very careful about going places
to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.  


Right now, do you have ‘home’ listed in your cell
phone directory?
