Her handbag which co! ntained 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 your Pin number. And I've replied a little while ago".
When they rushed down to the bank. Bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 mins he had withdrawn all the money from the bank account.
Moral of the lesson :
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, sweetheart,Jaanu,Dad, Mum etc..................and very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked thru SMS, CONFIRM by calling back.
