Stupid re-invention of wheel !

Any touchscreen is already capable of displaying that s**tty wheel of theirs - with all those "invented" functions - on-screen.

And if you don't like wheels you could easily change that to pentagram or other symbol preferable. Perhaps some symbol of pornographic nature. I would prefer using iTits control gland with nipple-stiffing feedback control =P

Removing SIM

Won't help if you have ever user your phone WITH your sim. Phone serial number is one of many things transmitted over air. You know, they have to distinguish one phone from another... Telcos have records of them.

Purchase a new phone with cash, or obtain used phone from flea market. Or steal one. Do not use SIM or obtain pre-paid sim with cash. Talk only on crowded areas, and make short calls. Never too many times on same place. Watch for security cameras. Now we are talking about making truly anonymous prank calls.

Why in the hell...

Did she pay for the car without seeing it, without contacting the owner by phone, verifying car details and bank account, and without getting a test drive ?

Based on the facts in this article, I'd still hit her, but with a solid object for being utterly stupid and avoiding all the precautions anyone with normal IQ should have when buying things which cost more than your daily income.

Let this be the anti-IT angle. I really think this has nothing to do with anti-virus scanners or malicious software installed on her computer. This was 99% genuine stupidity and 1% of computer problems.
