Wisely Using the InternetEdit

One should be careful to use Internet, particularly when it concerns financial and similar matters. Internet has a great potential to assist and help you. At the same time, many unscrupulous elements use it to entice you and trap you. Certain useful tips are:

  • Don't give your personal details unless you are sure of the site.
  • Don't be swayed by big claims and initial offers.
  • Don't give any advance payment - it is a sure sign of the situation that something is fishy.
  • Be especially careful of those who try to elicit information and details about you but keep their identities completely veiled and you don't have any clue about them.
