DO NOT GIVE YOUR Date Of Birth ON SOCIAL MEDIA!
Here’s a quick example of how giving out your date of Birth on social media can compromise your security . One of our users submitted what appears to be a genuine post from an online based astrologer who apparently does readings based on your date of birth and answers your questions.
We at NZSCAMALERT are not a big fan of astrologers or psychics but the intent of this astrologer is simply to promote engagement on his page and posts. This is the reason he asks people to post their Date of Birth and a question that they want him to answer. It seems like an innocent post but there are so many things that could go wrong here. First of all, the person could be a scammer and act as an astrologer to engage with people on personal level and pick out vulnerable people from the comments. Or there could be other scammers watching these posts and save your personal information such as date of birth.
Please do not give out your personal details such as Date of Birth, address to strangers on the internet.
