When you're on the net, keep these simple rules in mind:
Never give out identifying information -- home address, telephone number
-- in a public message such as chat or bulletin boards.
Consider using a pseudonym. Avoid listing your name in any public
directories and profiles.
Never respond to obscene, belligerent, threatening or harassing messages
or bulletin board items.
Never click on any links that are contained in e-mail from persons they
do not know.
Remember that people online may not be who they seem.
Remember that everything you read online may not be true. Any offer
that's "too good to be true" probably is.
