Stop! Don't charge your phone in public!

A deflated or empty phone or laptop is enough to send someone out to find a way to charge the device, but maybe you'd better think twice before using that random cable you find at an airport charging station or in the hotel's USB port - because there are hackers lurking. As the busy holiday season begins to arrive, Attorney's Office of Los Angeles County District is trying to warn travelers about the USB charging scam also known as "juice jacking".

“Just charging for free could end up emptying your bank account,” said Luke Sisak, a deputy prosecutor, in a video posted online this month.

Juice jacking happens when unsuspecting users connect their electronic devices to USB ports or use USB cables loaded with malware.

ING phishing - SMS messages look too real

However, banks such as ING, among others, do their utmost to guarantee security and privacy for their customers. This is tricky, because there are hyenas lurking.

Of course, these hyenas (also known as malicious companies) don’t do much good if you’re a customer of a company like ING. This type of practice makes it difficult for companies like ING to stay on both feet. However, you as a customer can help! So do so when you get the chance!
