When you share too much your privacy and personal information is no longer your own

Fairfax, Virginia - By now we’re all familiar with the infamous Nigerian Email scam; an unjustly deposed prince or official is in fear for their life and fleeing for the U.S. with $20,000,000 in tow. If you can front the prince (or official) a few thousand dollars then we’ll be be happy to send 10% of the treasure your way.

All such communications should be chalked up to the “if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn’t” category.

But the cyber cons don’t stop there. In the days where social media has all but takes over our monitors, it’s become all to clear that sharing every little aspect of your life comes with potential consequences. Enter NRA’s Refuse to be a Victim program.
