WARNING FROM A POLICE OFFICER
I would like to take this opportunity to alert my friends on Facebook to please be aware of some of the Facebook posts you comment on especially now while the world seems to be at a standstill. These posts ask questions such as, “What was your favorite teacher’s name? Who was your 1st grade teacher? Who was your childhood best friend? What was your first car?” etc. Do these questions sound familiar? They should. These are the same questions you are asked as security questions when setting up bank accounts and credit card accounts. When answering these questions and posting them, you are giving out answers to your security questions that you may be using without realizing it. Hackers are setting these up as a “get to know each other better” game on Facebook.
Thanks and stay safe.
