hey everybody... i was sittingby the computer and i got and advert about a free holiday. it looked so good and convincing. it said that if i ckicked on the link then i would win a trip to Dubai for a week. is that not amazing? yeah, i was getting ready to click on the link when i remebered the topic we have been discussing.

my point is, it is very easy to fall into such scams. you click on the lnk and next thing you know you have to give you banking details and home addresses away to complete strangers.
so please do remember to think before you act and not to take risks.
Some people stll dont know what identity theft really is..

here's an example:
An e-mail message may appear to be a request from your credit card company to verify your Social Security nimber and online banking password. Instead, the information you submit ends up in the hands of the scammer, who then uses the information for a variety of unethical and illegal acts. Sadly, the result is often identity theft...

so now i hope you understand what I'm talking about and can be cautious about these things. Do not let anyone or anything fool you.

Ethics and Issues...

Identity theaft

Through the use of e-mail and other techniques on the internet, scam artists are employing a technique known as PHISHING to try to steal people's personal infomation' such as credit card numbers, banking information and passwords. this is called identity theft.

ways to stop or prevent identity theft:
  • Shred your financial documents before throwing them away.
  • Don't click links in unsolicited e-mail messages
  • Enroll in credit monitoring service.

So to all people out there... Do not be blind sighted and be aware of such things. Don't be ignorant by thinking it would never happen to you, it could happen to the smartest of people and you could be one of them.
Feel free to share your expriences with me and others to make more awarenesses.
