Ian Andrews Fraudster Staying Safe Online

Staying safe online is common sense, right? Everyone wants security, especially when using the Internet. The reason why is because being unprotected while surfing online can be an absolute disaster and all it takes is just one scam, one fraud or one hacker to ruin your life forever. From 2013-2014, fraud crimes online spiked to about 10% (that’s a huge increase!) and online users as well as merchants had to come up with new ways to protect against fraud and even spam.

Today, I’m going to give you a few basic key tips to help you ensure you are safe and sound from the fraudsters. To begin with, we know e-mail comes and goes from computers and networks all over the world. These e-mails could possibly contain malicious files, even in the images, that are programmed to attach to your device, no matter if it is a personal computer or phone or tablet, and send the owner of the malicious software information about their prey! You should also be cautious when it comes to e-mail because you never know what is inside until you open it. If you suspect you may have opened a hazardous e-mail, delete it as soon as possible, scan your device with any detection software (I’d recommend Kapersky) and change your e-mail password using the on-screen keyboard application if using a computer just in case you may be bugged with a keylogger.

A fraudster who knows what they’re doing can gain access to any of your e-mail accounts and once they are in, who knows what kind of damage they could do? At that moment, you are completely at their mercy. They could set up accounts on sites to ruin your reputation and make you look bad, they could pretend to be you, and gain access to your bank if they hit the right e-mail account.

If you want to avoid this type of disaster, you should use a diff
erent password for every one of your e-mail accounts. The password should contain at least 9 characters with a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and keyboard symbols. Let’s say your name is Bob Wright. Your birthday is September 15, 1983 and your wife’s name is Tina Wright. A good password using that information would look like this: Bw091583_Tw

Ian Andrews Fraud Protecting Against Financial Fraud

No matter how many technological advances we made through the years, fraud will always be around. People are smart, but still do stupid things. If someone wants it bad enough, they will find their way around the advanced security.

The sad truth is that there is financial fraud that is becoming a growing problem around the world. You may believe that with as much technology we have, fraud would be more difficult to happen, but on the contrary, advances in communications technology are to blame for the financial fraud increase.

Now that we have identified the problem, what is the solution? For one thing, always check for the “s”. When entering personal information, such as a passwords or anything you wouldn’t want someone to steal from you, make sure the address of the website begins with “https”. The “s” stands for “secure” and any information you share with that site is protected. Beside the “https” you should also see a padlock to the left.

Another tip to protect your data is to ensure your anti-virus software is up to date. The anti-virus is what keeps your system healthy and protected from nasties of the cyber world every time you are online. In fact, you don’t even have to be actively using the internet to catch a virus or a hacker. Simply being connected is all it takes. The same ruling applies to your web browser.

Dr. Raouf Farag – Australian IVF Expert

Dr. Raouf Farag

Raouf Farag Office“One if by land, Two if by sea!” was a phrase made famous by Henry Longfellow as he described Paul Revere’s famous ride. In an interesting case, Dr. Raouf Farag is taking the same approach. He has met with people on his homeland and people arriving by sea. You see (pun intended), Dr. Farag is a IVF and OBGYN on the Central Coast of Australia but he doesn’t just live and work there, it’s where he has made a name for himself.

When considering IVF, there are many questions. Is it safe? What are the long term ramifications? Dr. Raouf Farag reviews? What can I expect? Is IVF treatment painful? These and other questions are all addressed by the excellent bedside manner of Dr. Farag.

In a recent Dr. Raouf Farag review, “Shelly M.” says the following when asked to describe her experience with the good doctor.

I was high risk and had Dr Farag. He was amazing and worth every cent regardless of the long waiting periods ( I learnt to ring up an hour before my appointment to see if they were running late etc) . I honestly believe if I didn’t have him throughout my pregnancy, things would of been missed and my son would not be here today.http://www.drfarag.com.au/

It is this and many other reviews like it that keep people coming back to the Gosford Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.

Update: Here is a brief video for Dr. Farag.
