bad travel advise ( security when away )

My corporate break room has this posted on  the wall for a security tip or advise.

This is very bad practice if you ever go away on long winded trip.  Here's why;

1: a luggage handler or anybody that handles the luggage now know where you live at

2: they know your on a vacation/business trip or travel

3: they have your  phone#. So if it's house,  the potential thieves could called to validate your actually NOT at home before arriving to break in.

What you should do;

1:  place your name and maybe your business address

2: place you cell-phone number or a temporal number ( dropbox, goog-voice, call forwarder, a cellphone# of a friend/relative who can relay to you if required ....)
