I found a very good article on credit card fraud, thought I would share some stats that I hope will drive home how important it is to protect ourselves on the Internet.

‘The ease of sharing information can lead some people to reveal too much. The danger of over-revelation leads beyond mere social faux pas. More than half of adults who use online social networks post information that puts them at risk of cybercrime, including fraudulent credit card use, says a recent survey by Consumer Reports.

According to the 2012 Javelin Strategy and Research’s independent analysis of identity fraud report, in 2011, more than 11.6 million adults were victims of fraud, up 11% from the previous year. The report also found that users of social media sites such as LinkedIn, Google +, Facebook and Twitter have the highest instances of identity theft. And though the study notes that there is no proof of direct causation, it also states that more people are sharing too much sensitive information via these sites that can be used to confirm identity.’

Do not post your birthday, Social Security Number or address online.  This is all information that can be used to steal your identity and put you and your family at risk.

Be safe and be blessed.
