SIM SWAPS

A SIM swap is Identity Theft in which bad guys steal your mobile phone number and get it assigned to one of their phones. They do this because a phone number is often used to prove identity, especially with forgotten passwords. Other terms for this are SIM hijacking, SIM jacking, SIM porting, phone porting, port out fraud and a port-out scam.
