Scams are prevalent in Baltimore County but we can prevent them!
December Scam: Cell Phones
A woman’s handbag, containing her cell phone, credit cards, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby from a pay phone telling him what had happened, he says “I received your text asking about our PIN number and I replied a little while ago.” When they rushed to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.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 Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
What should you do?
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Dad, Mom, etc.
And very importantly, when sensitive information is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back. Or just don't text sensitive information.
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.
