Keep things very simple with no details when you are on-line, sounds easy but so many are falling into the trap of scams, some so simple that they just get your email address but even that can be annoying as you are inundated with scam emails trying to get you to sign up to something or saying that your account needs up-dating.
Lets keep this straightforward, you will NEVER get an email from a bank, papal, eBay, social media site of any kind asking you to fill in or up-date your details, just delete; DO NOT EVEN READ.
The games on Facebook like find your fairy name, how old will you be when you die ALL these are rubbish and once you fill it in they have your email or Facebook information. Be sensible about clicking on the links people share in Facebook, you can probably get through the day without reading it, lol.
Don’t fall for the win a luxury holiday, the reason you never see who has won is because there is NO competition.
You can look on this site and see the fakes.
Never put your full name in your email address, if you have then delete it and get another one. Do not put your date of birth on anything. Please do not fall into the trap that so many have, be smart and keep your own identity. If you are not sure about something just delete.
Make sure your anti-virus software is up-to date and your firewall is on.
Computer running slow? Empty the JUNK and TRASH email folders. Remove programs you do not use anymore. Delete TEMPORARY files. Do a disk clean-up. All these things will help.
