A friend of mine sent me this via email and I thought I'd share with you all, eye opening stuff :shock:

"Keep a watch out for people standing near you at retail stores,

restaurants, etc., that have a mobile phone in hand. With the new

camera mobile phones, they can take a picture of your credit card,

which gives them your name, number, and expiration date. Identification

theft is one of the fastest growing scams today, and this is just

another example of the means that are being used. So ... be aware of

your surroundings!"

It's so simple when you think about it but it's made me think a little harder when standing in a que waiting to pay for something, credit card in hand!

Thanks for this, DT - very thoughful of you.

All of my contacts, a considerable number, now have a copy!

Sad old world, isn't it, that we need to be so aware.
