reminder: safe net use tips

Posted on June 28, 2007


For my own reference, but useful for anyone on-line:

By exercising caution and following some basic guidelines, you can
reduce your chances of falling victim to online identity theft.

1. Be suspicious of ANY email that asks for sensitive personal
information, even if the sender seems to be familiar.

2. Never open attachments or click links in spam or
unsolicited emails.

3. Avoid filling out forms contained in an email message or pop-
ups, even if they appear to be from a legitimate company with
whom you do business.

4. Run the latest version of a proven anti-virus software program
on your computer.

5. If you have logged on to a Web site, log off when you are
finished and close your browser completely.
