Are You Truly Safe Online?

In this day and age, we can do just about anything online. And it’s liberating. We can book appointments, speak to friends around the world, and make money too!

Because of that, we tend to mainly see the internet as a wonderful thing. It provides opportunities that we may not have ever had before. However, it is also important for us all to think about the risks that come with that. And, as a result, ask – are you ever truly safe online?

This is an affiliate contributed post. That means that Paul did not write the entire post.

Are You Truly Safe Online?

Catfishing


It’s lovely to be able to connect with different people online. You may find that you discover new business opportunities or make new friendships as a result. But, at the same time, you have to remember that you’re online – and that people may not be who they day they are. Catfishing can happen, so it’s better to be overcautious than targeted.

Wikipedia on Catfishing…

Catfishing is a type of deceptive activity where a person creates a sockpuppet social networking presence, or fake identity on a social network account, usually targeting a specific victim for abuse, deception, or fraud. Catfishing is often employed for romance scams on dating websites. The practice may be used for financial gain, to compromise a victim in some way, or simply as forms of trolling or wish fulfillment.

But, you may find that your details are used against you, whether that be your personal information on financial fraud with your cards and online banking.

There are 1000’s of victims who lost their money, we read a lot of news about cyber crime. The bad news is cyber crime is increasing day by day so we need to be very careful.
