Oprah ran a show this week on Internet Scams and other security issues and posted links on her website.
The bottom line is this:
- Treat all email as coming from STRANGERS. Email is public – not protected and not safe.
- Your bank, PayPal, EBay, etc. will NOT email you for info, no matter what. If they do happen to need info from you, they will ask for it the next time YOU LOG In to their secure site.
