Be careful when you SMS... General Mobile SMS Security - Mobile Security

This is regarding the General Security, We got to know in General about the Mobile Security as well as our Security - to be Safe from the Credit Card and Debit Card Theifs. Here's goes the security issue story that happened to be real - Just an story for the General Security And Identity Theft Challenges.

Be careful when you SMS...
A True Story:
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. 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When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.
Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the person 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.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS
