Did you ever Google your name and see all the things under your name? There are all kinds of tidbits of information available for all and sundry to see . . . I’ve heard tales of this tool called Life Lock hawked on FOX Talk Radio and never thought it was for me, never dreamed I would perhaps need the security an Identity Theft Protection Tool like that might provide.
I’m just an innocent stay-at-home Mom who dabbles a little on the computer with my Blog and writing my books, I never thought with my little dalliances on Twitter, Facebook and such that I was really vulnerable to the information “whores” who would go out and list my house address, VALUE, sq. footage, etc. and post it for the world to see. As if that isn’t bad enough, they don’t even have the information CORRECT! Wow, if that isn’t intrusive enough, they have every comment I’ve ever made on other blogs highlighted there. It’s weird and a little creepy. They even have information on a summons for a traffic violation I received almost a year ago. I wanted attention to get readership up for my blog, but not this way!
I don’t know if this is just the nature of the beast, or if I need to talk to my computer Guru, and see if there are ways to take some precautions. But be careful out there people, THEY’RE watching!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use my actual name mostly everywhere, but I’m very careful about what I do and don’t post online. I do check from time to time to see what’s out there and I have regular google-search reports for whenever my name comes up somewhere that I didn’t put it.
Apparently, there’s a country singer with my name — and a charter boat captain in Florida, too! 🙂
Hmmmm, I ‘m not savvy enough about this. I’ll have to check out more about this….
