A word to those wise enough:

Good thing to stay away from, anything running android. One of their 
apps, Samsung-Pay who apparently wants to be a paypal, is who phished me 
on my landline 3 weeks ago, forceing me to stop that card and get a new 
one.  They already knew _everything_ but the 3 digit number on the back 
of the card! Fortunately, I was quick enough they didn't get anything.
