On top of all the other security tick boxes, don't forget about the usual types of theft for which we are all vulnerable whether we are on the road or not.
I hatched this other thread
to describe the "inside job" fraud that we experienced this week when two unauthorized cell numbers were added to my husband's AT&T account. This occurred in conjunction with our addition of the Mobley in-vehicle cellular hotspot. By "inside job" I mean that it was done by a worker who had the authority to modify his AT&T account parameters.
We thought we had the mess under control until we double-checked this morning and found that $3,069 was still scheduled to draft out of my husband's checking account on his monthly AT&T bill, for which only $109 represents legitimate charges. Beware of autodraft.
I'm still not sure the case is resolved, and we have no idea how much additional personal identity information has been compromised during this process. He has to monitor his credit reports daily now.
All this headache for the sake of a mobile hotspot which I really wish I'd never heard of.
