Something to Think about

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she
knew had their car
broken into while they were at a football match. Their car
was parked on
the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and
specially allotted
to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a
garage door remote
control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently
mounted on the
dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had
been ransacked
and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.
The thieves had
used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used
the garage remote
control to open the garage door and gain entry to the
house. The thieves
knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what
time the game was
scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had
to clean up the
house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to
empty the house of
its contents.

Here's something else I had never thought
about.......This lady has now
changed her habit of how she lists her names on her
mobile phone after
her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her
cell phone, credit
card, wallet... etc.. was stolen.20 minutes later when she
called her hubby,
from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says
'I received your
text 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already withdrawn.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 thief had actually used the stolen
cell phone to
text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of
the pin number. Within 20
minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank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 in your
contact list. Avoid using names like Hom e, Honey, Hubby,
Sweetheart, Dad,
Mom, etc.... And very importantly, when sensitive info is
being asked
through texts, CONFIRM by calling back. Also, when
you're 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 don't reach
them, be very careful
about going places to meet 'family and friends' who
text you. *PLEASE PASS
THIS ON* I never thought about THAT! As of now, I no
longer have 'home'
listed on my cell phone.
