WARNING FROM NBI, DO NOT POST YOUR ID'S AND VITAL INFOS IN SOCIAL MEDIA!

While social networking sites like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more are helping us connect easily with our friends and families, we have to limit what we really post online. Identity theft is something we have to be concerned about. We have to remember that the information we put on our online accounts could be used by others to access our bank accounts, credit cards, and sometimes it could also be used in the worst case imaginable like this man in the video:  advertisement     Christopher Oliveros used to work in a telecom company. One day he woke up with his picture posted in national television as a suspect to an awful crime involving the murder of a mother and a child. An ID was fabricated and left in the crime scene to frame him up for the murder. According to him, the picture in the fake ID was from his profile picture in Facebook, and the information about his company was probably found in his LinkedIn account.  Other information that we should refrain from posting in the social media network could also be the following: Birth date and birth place:  While it may be nice to get birthday wishes, revealing your exact birthday and your place of birth is like handing over your financial security to thieves.  Mother's maiden name:  While you might not be using it on your financial accounts, this is usually a key used by companies as security question to access or reset password.  This teacher posted his PRC ID in Facebook  Public documents, ID's, travel itinerary and more: Documents like tax returns contain identification numbers that could be used to access personal information. The same thing is true for ID which could also be used by thieves to fabricate their own fake ID using your information. And although posting plane tickets seem harmless, it could also be used to spy on your whereabouts or know the perfect time when no one will be home.
