A friend of mine lost all the money in his account when thieves attacked him on his way home from the office, they collected his wallet that contained ATM cards. He thought the scammers can't withdraw money from his account without ATM pins. So, he didn't block his ATM card. Unfortunately, they withdrew all the money in his account. This can happen to anyone.
