Hello everyone - first post here, thank you in advance for your feedback.

I have heard about social engineering attacks where someone goes into a wireless store, impersonates me, and gets a new SIM on my account. And another type where they call the call center of my cell provider and get a new phone issued on my account.

Once they have these, they can do things like reset my email password and complete two factor authentication using the SMS codes sent to my phone, basically to steal my identity.

I would love to hear about the best ways to protect myself against these attacks.

Thanks so much!
