Security PSA

We live in an age where many of us utilize various websites and computers for financial transactions and this has opened up an entire illegal industry in stealing people’s money and identities from behind a keyboard. That doesn’t mean we have to make it easy for them.

To the lady a couple of months ago who made a credit card donation to a charity while on a plane… yes, several people could see you enter in your credit card number, CCV, zip code, etc. Your credit card might be stolen.

To the other lady who was next to me on a flight a while after that and set up a bank withdrawal to pay some bills… yes, I saw your bank, routing number, account number, name, address, and social security number. The people behind us probably saw it too if they were paying attention.

C’mon, people! Use some common sense.
