“Database”

This service is free, we just need your details,

We may pass this on to our partners… discreet fail,

Your personal information is the new currency,

When spent, expect bombardment, with things you don’t need!

Hackers might acquire it, and begin their cunning game,

With the ultimate goal, of getting credit in your name,

You don’t want a debt collector, barging through your door,

Be careful what you give out, seek advice if unsure!

There are companies out there, whose number one goal is to make money by selling your details on, they offer you something free and it might be half decent, but their real intention is to use your personal details to pay their bills, and then you get swamped with unsolicited calls, spam and maybe even a hacker’s fraudulent debt!

I mean, how can you be sure that firms are dealing with your details responsibly? For larger organisations, their reputation is at stake if it is traced back to them, so they should, but there’s always a small risk. With smaller firms who don’t have a stringent privacy policy and processes, the risks becomes greater.

So, be wary when you’re filling out personal information fields online, or even paper based forms, if you choose to proceed, only enter the REQUIRED information. Check the company’s policies, see the reviews for digital content before installing, only use secure sites with a green padlock symbol or https on the web address line.

Your personal details are more valuable than you can imagine, and they can be crippling to you in the wrong hands, so please be extra vigilant. I’d hate for you to learn the hard way, like a few of my friends have done! A bit of a serious post today, I know, but so, so, so important!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
