It would be nice to think that the Internet was a safe place all the time, but that would be foolishness. Don't simply reply to emails when asked for personal information - especially financial or other sensitive information and got yourself into trouble.
You should always check the source and make sure it's trustworthy. Let's not be another online victim.
Besides, there are many reported cases that PEOPLE LIE ONLINE. There is a lot of gender-switching in Cyberspace. Why? Well, could it be because many can hide behind the safety of their computer screens thinking that they can draw more attention to themselves?
Below are good quotes that can make one wise.
"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." - Buddha
"True friends are like diamonds, precious and rare. False friends are like leaves, found everywhere."
Do you feel a bit uneasy visiting blogs or sites that don't have the author name or photos?
