This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.
GPS:
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.
MOBILE PHONES:
I never thought of this. This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names onher mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, whichcontained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc, was stolen.20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone tellinghim what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text askingabout our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.  When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all themoney was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolencell phone to text ‘hubby” in the contact list and got hold of the pinnumber. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from theirbank account.
SUGGESTION:
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.  I never thought about the above!   As of now, I no longer have ‘home’ listed on my cell phone or my GPS. 
 
NEVER TALK OR TEXT ON YOUR CELL PHONE WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING.  IT MAY BE THE LAST THING YOU EVER DO.
