Prevention is always the best tool against criminal activity. Pay close attention to the information you disclose and post to social media. For example, certain people leave their Facebook page accessible to everyone on-line. Therefore, not only do your friends have access to this material, but also criminals with unscrupulous intentions can obtain the information they require such as vacation dates while you are away; knowing full well there is no one at home. With some simple research, these criminals can obtain your residential address and rob your home.

The amount of information contained in our portable devices today, make them a prime target for thieves, who can use this information stored in these devices to propagate fraud against you, obtain addresses of close friends, dates stored in your calendar, etc. If you see people coming back and forth around you or your phone, be very mindful. Most of the time, these thieves actually swap your cell phone with another; their mission is to steal your private information.
