What can your phone number be used for? When I was recently bereaved, I met a woman who had been duped.
Many strangers came into her home shortly after her husband died, presumably to give assistance.
One of those individuals obtained the personal details of the new widow, including her cell phone number.
The scammer exploited her social security number to acquire access to her benefits, which he then transferred to a second beneficiary.
"Hackers may easily wreak havoc on your life using your cell phone number in today's environment.
You should always think twice before disclosing your phone number, especially in a public situation, to secure your sensitive information.
