Let Us Be Wise And Be Sensitive.

A lady's handbag which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet etc., was stolen..20 minutes later, when she called her husband, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, HUSBAND says, "I received your text asking about our pin number and I have replied a little while ago".
When they rushed down to their bank, the bank staff told them that money had been withdrawn.
The Smart thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text the husband in the contact list and got hold of the pin number within 20 minutes and has withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
NOTE:
There is nothing really wrong in disclosing relationship between you and people in your contact list. I AM NOT ADVOCATING FOR OR AGAINST the use of names like home, honey, hubby, sweetheart, dad, mom, etc
What's important here is, when sensitive information is being asked through text, "confirm" by calling back...let's be wise and sensitive.
Also, when you are being sent text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that all message came from them. If you don't reach them, be careful about going places to meet "family and friends" who text you.
