@computergeek541 

Thanks for editing! I will edit my post.

 

@Jasonkam1984 

Sorry I should have made it absolutely clear to only supply such info to the moderators in a private message and that we in the community are only customers just like you. I strongly suggest before you are in contact with the moderators that you change ( edit) as many of the identifiers you answered here in your account as you can.

@LEGO 

 

Never want anything to remain unclear/incomplete. 

 

You have email notification setup for edits? I have completely turned off notifications for such things...

I think that we need to remember that new customers do not always necessarily know who works for Public Mobile or that threads are mostly answered by other customers.

@Jasonkam1984 holy cow dude.  This is a public forum.  Never post any personal information on a public forums.  There are many fraudsters lurking around public forums ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims.  

 

I don't know exactly how long your private info was out there for everyone to see, but your account, credit card info and other financial information might have already been compromised.  Change your passwords asap and check your credit card charges.

 

Best wishes

Re: Sim card swap

It was probably about 5 minutes from the time of the post, @RosieR 

 

Perhaps we ought to collectively cease posting specific items which might prompt a response with unintended personal information.  

 

It's probably best to let the moderators drive those lines of discussion through private message.

The information was there for about 3 minutes, but on the internet, that might as well be 3 years.  Someone using the forums might have an old or cached version of that page/message still loaded and there are some website that specialize in in preserving the conent of some websites at a certain moment of time. Also, it only takes a second for some to copy and paste the infromation.

I agree @HALIMACS let the moderators ask the questions in private messages.
