But if the transaction were legitimate, the mobile phone customer could authorize the transaction by providing the correct PIN, or perhaps swiping a finger. PLEASE NOTE, There WILL be LEGITIMATE FILES LISTED. AVG will now begin the scanning process. The Identitytheft.gov reports indicate that it is common for thieves to hijack a mobile phone account and also open other accounts in the victim’s name, days or weeks later.
Don't use the Analyse This button. Already have an account? The PIN or biometric would never leave the phone, but would instead be used to unlock a “key” to authorize the transaction. Click here to Register a free account now!

It's a little different, so thought I'd make you aware of what happened, to point out other ways they take over your phone account... However, it will not prevent the phone account hijacking I described in this blog post. reply Hector Carrion replied on Jan 17, 2017 4:29PM Permalink This just happened to me today.

T-Mobile allows their customers to establish a customer care password on their accounts. In May a man was arrested in Oregon for trying to buy four iPhones at a Verizon store using a fake ID.

reply Guest replied on Jun 8, 2016 6:22PM Permalink Can someone who has physical access to my phone line, outside my dwelling, use such access to impersonate the person or company One of the most important steps you can take is to establish a password or PIN that is required before making changes to your mobile account. On those two separate occasions, one Steam user sends me a friend request. They have mechanisms in place to put locks on transfers like internet domain names...but not for mobile numbers?
Now, in order to upgrade to the S7, Sprint is saying that I have to pay almost $1,000 to do so. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. I did the other things you said though. reply Queenmist replied on Jun 28, 2016 3:59PM Permalink This happened to me in 2012.

Only if the carrier's are responsible for the cost/risk will there be sufficient incentive to stop this sort of thing. They acted as if I had done something wrong! Each of the carriers offers this feature to their customers in a slightly different way. Should I file a report based on suspision and verbal taunts or just change all my passwords and accounts and just let it go?
Using this extra password or PIN is a good idea and should help reduce your risk of mobile account takeovers. Click here to join today! Thirdly, the links sent to me were definitely fake. One of my phones had ended up with the wrong phone number and the other one no longer had voice mail.
