For those of your you are big on Facebook, and have friends that invite you to play along and post answers to groups of questions for fun.........please be very careful. Almost all of these fun "play alongs" you will see have the same security questions you'll be asked for online bank accounts/credit card accounts/or other places you have accounts with.

By posting these answers you could be providing possible answers to those security questions. Some of these questions are also designed to provide more information about you. It seems harmless and fun but these are being used by bad people to do bad things to you. Limiting what you post to your "Friends" isn't always safe.

Protect yourself...... be safe

Here is an example of one I just saw recently. There are definitely 4 in the list below, plus several that give some pretty good details about you personally.....

Class of:
1. Did you know your current love?
2. Type of car?
3. What kind of job?
4. Where did you live?
5. Were you popular?
6. Were you in choir or band?
7. Ever get suspended?
8. If you could, would you go back?
9. Still talk to the person that you went to prom?
10. Did you skip school?
11. Go to all the Football games?
12. Favorite Class?
13. Do you still have your yearbook?
14. Did you follow your career path?
15. Do you still have your high school ring?
16. Who was your favorite teacher?
17. What was your favorite style?
18. Favorite Shoes?
19. Favorite food?
20. Favorite band?
21. High school hairstyle?
22. What cologne/perfume?
23. How old when you graduated?
24. What high school did you attend?
