Hi y'all, i don't if this story is real, but the advice given below is very useful and so am sharing it with y'all. Inform your close friends and family.
A lady's handbag which contained her cell phone, credit card, purse etc was stolen. Thirty minutes later she managed to call her husband, from a pay telephone telling him what happened.
Her husband said, 'I just received ur text msg asking about our pin number and I have replied a little while ago'. When they rushed to the bank, the staff told them their money was already withdrawn.
The thief had used the stolen cell phone to text her husband and get hold of their pin number. Within twenty mins he (thief) had withdrawn their money from their bank account.
As much as possible do not disclose the relationship between you and the people on ur call list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey,Sweetheart, Mum, Dad etc. And very importantly, when sensitive information is being asked for through txt msg, confirm by Calling Back.
Also, when being texted by frnds or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the msg came from them. If you do not reach them, be very careful about going places to meet family and friends who text you.
