another money scam in action.... If I can't personally talk to my so called friend, I surely wouldn't send money.

The problem with this is people put all their information out there.... name, address, phone number, d.o.b, email address, city, state, high school and then wonder why/how they get scammed...? Sometimes all someone needs to get is your full name and d.o.b.

On facebook.. I dont have my hometown listed, no highschool, job, address, phone number, email address, no d.o.b. I dont even use my full name. I had someone once ask me why I have no personal info listed (someone who wasnt on my friends list and was trying to find me) and I replied.. well, if your my friend there is no need for me to list all that information because you should already know it.

I tell everyone, ONLY put online info about yourself that you are comfortable with ANYONE finding out. That way, if someone does happen to hack you, phish you.. your sorta ok.
