Examples and Concepts of Online Identity Theft Activity

Online predators go to great lengths to acquire your personal information.

Where do online predators get your information? One explanation is that a small hub (conveniently disguised as a business) can gather and sell contact numbers, emails, and other information to these fraudulent people through organized distribution systems. Once your information is acquired, it can be repeatedly sold and used by individuals with bad intent to attempt to acquire your banking and pertinent finacnial information. One of my e-mail addresses made it on the target list of somewhere. Instead of cancelling the e-mail address and starting over, I took the opportunity to utilize these messages as learning points so that no one is taken in by this criminal behavior. Below are some examples of the results of this type of activity.

"Bamina Ajila" also had the good courtesy to provide pictures, perhaps hoping that young men would be deluded into giving up their money in exchange for some semi-sensuous material. Although this is not the case, the pictures are below.
