Life is short forgive quickly! Kiss slowly, Love truly! Laugh uncontrollable...... And never regret anything that made you smile!

“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Something to Think About

This is a email I received today. It was one of those that made me think and make a couple of changes. I thought I would just pass it on by my blog.

Alice rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.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 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 sent a 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 THAT! I'm going to check my phone and see how I have things listed. What is the world coming to that we have to be so careful about everything.
