Cops warn of scammers using simple social media tricks to steal identity

Cops warn of scammers using simple social media tricks to steal identity

People love to share their words on almost anything published at social networks, and they particularly like to participate in thrill surveys.

The cops' statement:

Please be aware of some of the posts you comment on.

The posts that ask what was your favorite teachers name, who was your first grade teacher, who was your childhood best friend, your first car, the place you born, your favorite place, your first pet, where did you go on your first flight, etc.

Those are the same questions asked when setting up accounts as security questions. You are giving out the answers to your security questions without realizing it. Hackers are setting these up as a get to know each other better game. Then they build a profile of you from several data sources, and eventually figure your passwords to various sensitive areas like your bank, or simply apply for credit in your name.
