3.11.5 Security in Internet

Internet is a new place for criminals to act. Even though, we do not have to run away from the opportunities this media provides us nowadays. Some operations may be even safer than those made in the real world.

3.11.5.1 Safety purchases and sales

  • Purchase and sell in reliable webs
  • Do not provide account numbers, not even for bank transfers
  • Do not advance money to receive gifts or prizes in cash or for obtaining employment contracts
  • Use only the credit card in completely reliable web sites of reputable entities
  • Be cautious with generous offers and with those coming from other countries
  • Make sure you are in a safe place to make transactions

3.11.5.2 Other frauds

  • We must be cautious with some job offers, especially those asking you for cash advance or those offering profits for being the intermediary in financial transactions such as transfer of money from one account to another.
  • Make sure the website you are using really belongs to the company or institution you are looking for. There are web sites which imitate or copy others with the aim of defrauding. The most common way of accessing fake web sites is through a direct link which they usually send you by email.
  • You must be especially cautious with those mails which supposedly come from a bank and ask you for your account, credit card or identity information. You must protect you security.
  • You must also be aware when receiving alerts by email or by phone about job offers or anything else, asking you to phone those famous additional tariff numbers or Premium numbers for more information.

3.11.5.3 Other crimes

Child pornography. If you find any file related to this kind of crime accidentally, or someone offers it to you, you must notify the Police. Even possession of these files is a crime as well.
