March 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #94: Keep Personal Information to Yourself

Tip of the Week

Information such as where you work, your home address, home phone number and real name should be kept confidential.

The online biker dating site that you choose should also keep this information confidential.

Any information that could be used to find out your real identity should be kept confidential.

Do not mention friends names, families names or co-workers’ names either. Remember in today’s world where information is just a search away it would not take much to find out information about you or someone you know. The last thing you want is for an unexpected stranger to show up at your place or work, residence or some other place you might be looking for you.

Use a screen name that it not even close to your real name.

If you mention the state you live in do not mention the town until you decide to meet up.

If it is a small town you may want to meet in a larger city.

Do not give out your home or work phone numbers.

If you must speak via phone use a cell phone number. You may even want to set up a separate cell phone, such as a pay-as-you-go cell phone, just for this purpose.

Remember the less they know, the less likely they can find you. Keep your information to yourself until you meet this other person and decide to take the relationship forward.
