Covert Phone Conversation (Choho)

In dealing with personal security for your team, family and or clients, there is often an overlooked area of communication in which to convey a “secret” message, oh yes it is the ubiquitous phone. Whether you are on a cell phone or land line it doesn’t matter, your conversation can be tapped, recorded, intercepted and potentially endanger you or the recipient. So in order to help prevent this from occurring here are a few tips on how to surreptitiously communicate!

1)      Remember all call start with a common greeting “hello…” without this your call becomes very easy to flag as suspicious.

2)      Set up particular code wor or phrases in advance that both parties know. Ex: Honey, I have the flower project to work on so I’ll be late, translates “there is trouble in our area so I will be there shortly. Whatever you chose make sure it is understood on both ends and not shared with others.

3)      Keep it short and simple. This is best, so as not to lead anyone listening that there is actually something being passed between the parties other than a short message.

4)      Practice! Make sure each member on the team or the parties know what to do if a code phrase or word is given.

Now, I have given a few tips but of course this can be a quite expansive lesson here, so what you need to do is figure out what messages you may want to transfer to your family or team members, bring them into the practice and then start using it. Knowing that there can be trouble and preparing for it in advance gives a ninjutsu practitioner an edge to help his family, friends and himself a significant advantage over his opponents or circumstances.
