Relationship with mobile

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. 20min later when she called her hubby, telling him what happened. Husband says "I've just received your SMS asking about our Pin number. & I've replied a little while ago". When they rushed down to the bank. Bank staff told them all the money already withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen hand phone to sms "hubby" in the contact list & got hold of the pin number. Within 20 mins he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.

Morale of the lesson: Do not disclose the relationship between you & the people in your contact list. Avoid using name like Home, Honey, Hubby, sweetheart, Dad, Mum etc...... & very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked thru SMS, CONFIRM by calling back.
