Make sure the voicemail on your mobile phone is password protected. As people in Britian found out, if your mobile phone is not password protected, anyone can hack into your VM. It is called ID spoofing, and it allows a hacker the ability to to call a cell phone and use spoof software to fool the system into thinking it is you calling from your phone. End result- they get your messages! So check right now. For many of us it is so automatic to check our voicemail that we don't even think about whether we are entering a password. If not, change your settings on your VM so you are password protected. You don't know how valuable your VM is until someone else has that information.
