Re: SIM Swap Fraud

Fell victim to this last night. Fortunately I got it all figured out. Thank you Moderators!

Admittedly my Public login password was weak. I did not think hackers would gain anything from using this account but now I know they could do a lot of damage.

@felix1 Thanks for coming here and letting everyone know your experience. I think it's important to note that your account or mine may not provide hackers what they are looking for once they are in but it is a massive headache and I would think a physiological hit to go through this. Once they realize there is nothing to be gained they may well move on, leaving the affected parties to pick up the pieces.
