Hackers, Scammers and Spammers

How to STOP these from hurting YOU

Hackers: These people will get your money by getting into your accounts using a program or finding your password somewhere. Keep your info private and don't allow suspicous internet programs to make changes to your computer.Scammers: These also want your money, but they trick you with things like competitions or "Free" iPads if you subscribe. (then they spam you and charge you for each email/phone call/text) Just avoid these by not falling for any "Overly cheap valubles" or a competition that has a huge prize. ALWAYS read the fine print. They also make fake login pages for trusted supporters like Facebook, YouTube or Google, however the URLs are always fake, no matter how geood the imitation of the page is. they then use these details to get into your account like hckers.Spammers: Spammers don't usually want to hurt you, they just want you to buy their things. Prevent spam email by selecting the email and pressing the junk button. Don't click on their links unless there's something you might actually want.
