Protect Yourselves from Electronic Fraud and Hoaxes


We have fraudsters.  We have hoaxers.

Are there victims?  Sure.

But we must be vigilant in how we see – or read – things on the internet.  It is easy for your sympathies to be played…and your hearts (or your wallets) drained.

Just one case in point…  Although this involves Facebook (which I had abandoned a couple of years ago), the medium is of no consequence.  A “blog” can achieve the same results.

And people will get hurt…  Perhaps financially but always emotionally which can be the most costly.

It is NOT a victimless crime.

We all want to feel we helped someone, some animal or pet, or a family in need after a natural disaster.

At the same time, help yourself before you find yourself – or your own family – getting hurt.

Look into a “feel sorry for me” post or blog thoroughly before giving your heart.

If too many things are happening to someone, and you start to feel more sympathetic than ever, take a deep breath…  Think about the entire scenario first.  You will be able to breathe easier later.
