Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest, LinkedIn and other social networks have become an essential part of online lives. Social networks are a great approach to stay connected with others, but you should always be aware about how much personal information you post...
As technology advances, trying to maintain privacy on the Internet has become increasingly difficult. Nowadays there are so many different ways to be tracked online. Many everyday activities now involve computers and the Internet. Cell phones, emails, web browsers, search engines, and social media sites are just a few examples of technologies that produce digital footprints as a natural byproduct of using them.
These days, we share more and more personal details about ourselves online — whether intentional or not. You may think that you are anonymous as you browse websites, but pieces of information about you are always left behind.
This information can include browsing behaviors, but more importantly, it could also include personally identifiable information, which can potentially be exploited by criminals for identity theft.
Social networking sites are growing in popularity at an exponential rate. They have become a common occurrence in our daily lives — among all generations. For example, Facebook with over 1 billion active users is now the biggest social media website amongst other giants such as Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, Pinterest and the list goes on. While they are a great way to stay in touch with old friends, find new friends, keep family up-to-date, post pictures, and so on; they are also now very popular places for people who have bad intentions.
Fraudsters are always looking for an opportunity during tax season, they know that a lot of personal and financial information is going to be changing hands. Aside from making sure that your receipts and documents are in order, there are a few other things that you need to make sure to avoid being a victim of identity theft or scams during tax season....
Fraud can happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime. Chances are you have received a few fraudulent emails, ambiguous phone calls, encountered fake online ads, questionable posts on social networking sites or maybe someone has come knocking at your door? Avoid becoming a victim! March is International Fraud Prevention Month and is a good time to practice new strategies.
