We have tv programs on this sort of thing in the UK, this is why I try to do as little as I can when it comes to bills and banking online. I still get paper billing and still go directly to the bank. I don't like having loyalty cards either. Unfortunately, in this day and age, you are the product, and the target, so they sell your data, and then target you.

      Sounds reasonable. The only details I have online are e-commerce websites like EBay and PayPal and my card details on my iPhone for purchasing songs and items on different websites that sell items but I’m careful with the website itself to know it’s for real and authentication such as the padlock symbol on the URL. If the website says not secure I do not go any further and close that webpage. My details should be safe as long as I keep my password to myself.
  • Have you ever received a call or text from yourself? I have.
  • business people give em your number
