There's only one you; keep it that way by protecting yourself against identity crime. That's the message from Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police as part of the #Be Cyber Smart campaign.
#Be Cyber Smart
Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police have launched the #Be Cyber Smart campaign to raise awareness of internet-related crime and to give people the knowledge they need to stay safe online.
With the strapline 'The Virtual World Has Real Life Consequences', #Be Cyber Smart encourages people to think about how they behave on the internet and raises awareness of what they can do to protect themselves against online crime.
Do you know how to protect yourself against identity crime?
Looking for love online?
An increasing number of people are using the internet, both dating chat rooms and websites, to look for love. While this approach can be successful for many, there are others who do not find the love of their lives and instead become the victims of fraudsters.
The internet is a fantastic resource for people searching for that special something for friends, family and loved ones in the run up to Christmas but it also presents opportunities for fraudsters to set up scams.
Sexting? Think twice
Teenagers are being urged to think twice before 'sexting' and to pause before posting something on social media which could later be a source of regret.
