A friendly Reminder: Beware the Con!

The internet is a wonderful tool that has allowed humanity to make the world itself and all the wonders it holds readily available for all. Information from across countries and time are readily shared. But it also a place of danger where fortunes are stolen on a daily basis. Fortunes sometimes translated into the millions.

There are such people who will do anything to gain the upper hand and as long as they cannot see your face their conscience will not burden them. Another wonder made possible through the digital age. They will approach you, of that there is no doubt. It is only a question of when and how.

You must be wary of people whom you do not know especially when you cannot see them.For that is where demons lurk.
