A Word of Warning

Always be cautious if anyone online asks for you to supply personal information, such as your Social Security number, to conduct a transaction. It is rarely necessary and should be taken as a warning sign. Scams are spreading very quickly on the internet and as a smart consumer; you will want to safeguard yourself.

I opened my inbox a while ago, and I have this message again saying that they still have an open slot for me, and he/she asked me to fill up the form completely so I could receive the slot. The form’s questions were all personal information. Darn, if they are legit, why not send me an application form, and I will apply for it. In fact, I don’t understand what kind of slot he/she was talking about. Well, I just ignored the email and never bothered to read the whole message. They are exactly wasting my time.
