#AlertnessToAll and felt it was #TooGoodNotToShare ..

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 said, "I just received your text message asking me to remind u of your ATM pin and I have replied a little while ago".

When they rushed to the bank, the staff told them money had already been withdrawn.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Within twenty minutes he (thief) had withdrawn her money from the bank account.

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