Don't Be Quick in Releasing Sensitive Information Over Text _by Prince Davidson

_A lady's handbag which contained her cell phone, credit card, purse etc was stolen._
_Thirty minutes later she managed to call her husband from her friend's telephone, telling him what happened._

_Her husband reply, "I just received your text message asking me to remind you of your ATM pin and I have replied a little while ago"._

_When they rushed to the bank, the bank customer service told them money had already been withdrawn._

_The thief had used the stolen cell phone to text her husband and get hold of her PIN._

_Within twenty minutes the (thief) had withdrawn her money from the bank account._

_Thus when sensitive information is being asked for through text message, confirm by calling back._

_Also, when 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 do not reach them, be very careful about going places to meet family and friends who text you._

So the message from Prince Davidson is, Don't Be Quick in Releasing Sensitive Information over text, even if the person asking for it seems to be someone you know and truth.
