CYBER CRIME


Cyber crime is another issue which is causing concern. Never give anyone information about yourself which identifies you, so never tell them your real name, your address, where you go to school, never give them your phone number and NEVER, EVER arrange to meet them on your own or with a friend. If they ask you not to tell parents about their contact with you then that's good reason for wondering what they are up to !


Never tell anyone your bank account detalis or your parents account detalis or any passwords. Make sure you change your log-in detalis regulary. Be cyber savvy!!!!
