VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

SMARTPHONES CAN DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THESE DAYS --

BUT THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS WARNING THEIR EXPLOSIVE GROWTH IS BECOMING A DOORWAY TO BANK FRAUD.

ONE STUDY FOUND ATTACKS ON BANK ACCOUNTS COST 4.9 BILLION LAST YEAR, A JUMP OF 69 PERCENT IN JUST ONE YEAR, WITH SMARTPHONES BEING THE NEW TARGET OF CHOICE FOR FRAUDSTERS.

SOUNDBITE: Marie Gooding /First VP, Atlanta Federal Reserve:

"We have some very bad characters who would like to take our money, take our identification, and run away with it"

ATTORNEY ANDREW CARTER LEARNED THE HARD WAY. HE LOST HIS PHONE AT THE AIRPORT. HE HAD A MOBILE BANKING APP ON HIS PHONE -- BUT DIDN'T KEEP HIS PHONE LOCKED

SOUNDBITE: Andrew Carter, attorney

"I used to have a lock on it, but it was annoying me, so I took it off. That was definitely a big mistake"

ANDREW CARTER GOT HIS STOLEN $2,000 BACK. BUT HIS EXPERIENCE IS EXACTLY WHAT THE FED IS CONCERNED ABOUT -- THAT PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE THE RISKS

THE FED'S ONLINE BANKING SYSTEM HAS STRICT AUTHENTICATION STANDARDS. BUT STUDIES SHOW CONSUMERS ARE MORE CARELESS WITH PHONES THAN THEY ARE WITH HOME COMPUTERS - GIVING FRAUDSTERS AN INCENTIVE:

SOUNDBITE: Vikram Thakur, Principal Security Response Manager, Symantec.

"These rogue applications can sort of give the end attackers complete control of your phone, whether it's SMS's, phone calls, monitoring for messages as well as stealing any of your contact information."

NEW TECHNOLOGY LIKE FINGERPRINT SCANNERS CAN HELP. AND THE FED IS WORKING WITH INDUSTRY TO IMPROVE SECURITY. BUT IT WARNS THAT SO FAR, MANY CONSUMERS AND BUSINESSES ARE BEING REACTIVE -- INSTEAD OF PROACTIVE -- ABOUT SMARTPHONE CYBERCRIME.
