Editorial: Watch out for phone crooks
Smartphones and cellphones make communication easy. They fit well into a society interested in immediate gratification.
But there's a downside, too. The nature of these phones makes them targets for thieves.
Shoppers with smartphones use their devices to compare prices, check store inventories and buy online. Meantime, cybercriminals follow the money. So be sure not to give these crooks bank account or credit card numbers.
