Although this is of course one person's first-hand (anecdotal) experience with a stolen SIM card, the author goes into great detail to explain how he thinks it happened, what he had to do to try and save his accounts and financials, and what he recommends others do so that they are more prepared and can be more preventative than he was. It's overall a very helpful and informative article that readers can learn from.
