I had a contact within our industry who wasn't happy about a business related deal. This individual has some high up connections in one of the main "big 4" cell phone carrier's management.
My wife and I woke up to having no cell phone service. Upon calling the carrier, we we're told our numbers had been ported out and were in this business colleagues company name. The account was in our personal names.
CS escalated to fraud division. CS said they're unsure how someone bypassed mandatory security that allow authorization to take place.
Took a few days to get our numbers back. Ex-Client called and said he knew the highest security executive in the company and that we should be "lucky" if it doesn't happen again.
The carrier offered $800 credit to account but I feel violated!
