Each one of these questions represents a possible risk factor or protection against ID theft. Each time you added points you were on the right track. Each time you subtracted points you entered a danger zone.

Several recent experiments have shown that nine in 10 people would give up computer passwords in exchange for a small gift like a chocolate bar when questioned by someone holding a clipboard.

But it was a Milky Way!!!!!


mmmmm Milky way. I would never give any of my passwords away ever, how silly would that be. If you have private information on your computer, it would just be like saying to somebody "oh, here why not have all my bank details and my pin number and my mobile phone number, my address and everything." My computer is full of personal information and I wouldn't give my password to anyone, not even my family knows my password.

It would have to be dark chocolate, but I didn't say I'd give up the correct password. :whistling:
