Internet and Social Networking Safety
The Internet gives you easy access to information, entertainment, financial offers and countless other services. The flip-side, however, is that it can leave you vulnerable to online scammers, identity thieves, and criminals. To guard against Internet fraud, follow the tips below:
Know your seller. If you don't, do some research.
- Company websites often provide information in a section called "About Us". Some online sellers participate in programs, such as BBBOnLine, that help resolve problems. Look for a logo or endorsement seal on the company website. This is an indication, but not a guarantee, of the seller's reliability.
- Check with state and/or local consumer offices.
- Another way to check online sellers is to look for other consumers' comments. Visit Bizrate, where consumers rate online stores. Some Internet auction sites post ratings of sellers based on comments by buyers. This information may give you some idea of how you'll be treated, but beware of too many glowing stories that might have ben placed by sellers themselves.
Protect your personal information. Don't provide it in response to an e-mail, a pop-up, or a website you've linked to from an e-mail or web page.
- Take your time and resist any urge to "act now" to keep your account open or take advantage of a special offer.
- Use anti-virus and anti-spyware software, as well as a firewall, and update them all regularly. Make sure your operating system and web browser are set up properly and update them regularly as well.
- Protect your passwords. Don't share your passwords with anyone. Memorize them.
- Back up important files. Copy them onto another computer or a removable hard drive such as a flash memory stick. When you spill coffee on your laptop or if your computer stops working, you'll be glad you did.
Learn who to contact if something goes wrong online. Report suspected fraud to your bank, credit card company or relevant authority.

- Create seperate lists to manage who can see information you've posted.
- Be careful about who can see your status updates.
- Refrain from telling people where you are at any specific time.
