Oh, Lordy. I wondered when this would happen . . .
A Phoenix Twitterer announced via update that he and his family were taking off on a fabulous vacation . . . tra la la la la . . .
. . . they returned home
to find their home had been B and E'd and their possessions liberated.
We are a nation of revealers. We announce when and what we eat, who we hang out with (even when we don't KNOW who it is!), what we do and how much we pay. This is TMI!
When you update Twitter, Facebook, MySpace etc . . . do yourself a huge favor and leave the parts where you come and go for long periods of time OUT. Focus instead on what you find interesting . . .
This phenomonon has been repeating itself in a dozen states all over the country.
Good news for crooks who can Google Map and e-case you from the comfort of their PC.
BAD NEWS FOR YOU!
When the information is sensitive and can put you at risk--no matter HOW AWESOME or INTERESTING it will make you seem to others . . .
