    I never thought of this.......

    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    When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.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:

    Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, 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.

    ...Ooh, definately!

    bahati mbaya/nzuri katika nyumba nyingi spouses wanaoishi 'kimtego mtego,' uki scroll contact list ya mgombea mwenza unakutana na majina ya ajabu ajabu i.e ...msusi-sinza, aunty J4, wifi-ukonga ...pokea hapo simu ikiita, unakumbana na sauti ya njemba!

    Nimesikia kuna mswada unapelekwa bungeni kuhusu matumizi ya simu. Huenda kukawa na registration ya namba za simu (kama ilivyo bank account kwa mfano). Hili linaweza kupunguza baadhi ya matumizi yasiyo halali kwa sababu watu wataweza kufuatilia mwenye namba ya simu.

    Hata hivyo registration haitaweza kuondoa matatizo yote kwa mfano hayo niliyoyataja hapo juu kwenye hiyo story.

    ...I hope muswada wa Data protection act utapitishwa pia kudhibiti mtu yeyote kuchungulia namba za watu, unless mwenyewe atataka jina lake liwe kwenye kitabu cha orodha ya simu.

    Nice lesson though, nimejifunza hapo, nxt time mamsapu akini txt kuulizia important details bora ku counter check.
