44. Phishing

Sometimes people create fake websites that look like Facebook and may ask you to login. This is phishing and it’s a way to try to steal usernames, passwords and other info. Remember, Facebook will never send an email asking for your account password, social security or tax id number or your full credit card number.

If you ever receive a suspicious email, don't click on any links in it or respond to it.

If  you accidentally click on a spam post, it might lead you to a site that would install a spyware or virus into your computer. Be aware of what you click in your emails and text messages.
