I read a security related post or email somewhere a few months ago warning us to list names like Dave or Sue in cell directories, not relationships like Mom or Dad. I don`t recall the whole rationale behind it, but was along the lines of making it harder for scam artists to identify parents or grandparents if the phone was stolen or lost, and they said a child was in jail and needed money for bail or injured and needed immmediate medical aid, etc..
Well, all you would have to do to see if the "scam artist" knows your name....
Your daughter is in jail and needs money!
Sure she is, tell me my name?
I think folks are just a bit too paranoid these days, and it seems, not as smart.
I think if both me and my wife were in an accident and unable to respond, I would really appreciate it if the hospital knew that those folks names in our cell phones, out of all the others in there, were our children.
And btw, if my daughter lost her phone and someone called me, from "dad" likely the listing on her phone, we have a family "password" to tell if the folks on the other end were for real or not. (other than them knowing my name, address, where I work, my cats name, what kind of car I drive, etc...)
