Thumbs up Good Advice For Everyone

This gives us something to think about with all our new
electronic technology.

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she
knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. 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 out the house. It would
appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your
home address in it.. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station)
so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else
would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

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

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was already withdrawn.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Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank

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, Dad,
Mom, etc....

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked
through texts, CONFIRM by calling back

Also, when you're being texted 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..]BEST online marketing tools on the web! Great support too
