Even if you are very careful, some things can still slip through the cracks. The Internet is an easy way for someone to steal your identity. Unknowingly clicking links or downloading attachments allows people to steal information from your computer using spy-ware. Online banking and sites such as PayPal are also hotbeds for scammers who want to steal your account information and your money. The best way to protect yourself, don't click strange links, download strange attachments, and protect your account information. Use anti-virus software to make sure your computer stays clean and virus-free.
But most importantly, use common sense. Your instinct is still your best defense.Site Map | Citations
