    Millions stolen in SMS banking scam

    They don't say but I suppose this applies to cellphone (mobile) banking, and only if
    password and username have been obtained via phishing.
    I do online banking which requires profile no. (not secret),PIN and lastly username.
    If I have to add a beneficiary I must in addition enter a number which is sent to
    me by SMS from the bank and needs to be entered before a new beneficiary can be added.
    We are now worse than Colombia crime-wise. :argh:

    (Hope the link still works)
