Tags . . . How innocent are they??
I was tagged and accepted to put up my pic. for the only reason that it is already on the cover of my book, both front-page and back. You do best in being incognito when you have a blogg.
We are not talking about people who believe WE are crazy...We are talking about readers that are crazy. Believe me, it is people out there who are psychopaths. Especially if you are a women or have children, you should be very careful announcing too much of habits, and so on.
I remember it was a TV-program in Scandinavia once long time ago, where it was told that some these tags / tag-ideas are originally made by criminals and hackers, just for the purpose to get the information about, per example; your daily life to know when your home is empty and for how long time, in order for them to know when to do burglary in your home, or how many children you have and what age, in order for pedophilia to know where to find them . . . rapists, murderer, sadists . . . It’s enough of them.
The way they did it was to make short version of tags with only a few question in each, which separate seams innocent, but in the hand of a criminal…They collect the tags and put them together . . . and BINGO . . . Suddenly they know all details about you, your family, children, where you live, work and work-rutine, your fears, habits, where and when you go on holiday, your favorites of all kind . . . Yes, at the end they even can figure out your address.
These people are not bloggers and they never make comments. . . They only read and search for blogs at the area they are interested in.
Believe me, I have worked as a private investigator, I know how easy it is to find a person if I want. And you shall never under-estimate a criminal. . . Especially if you have small children.
I shout out this as a warning, to all you people out there who believe tags is innocent.
Is it paranoia??? In the moment you are a victim of a crime and you wonder how they possible could know so much about you . . . . Then remember . . . It is better to be up-front caution, than afterwards wise.
