How to avoid web scams

Another guide.  Probably brief enough for most.  The headings are:

  • Never, Ever Click a Link to Your Bank or Financial Institution From an Email
  • Never Give Out Your Email Password
  • Use Strong Passwords (and Secret Questions)
  • Do Not Buy Anything from an Email You Didn’t Ask For
  • Watch Out for Job Postings That Look Too Good
  • Do Not Give Out Your Personal Info or Social Security Number
  • Learn to Use a Modern Browser’s Security Features
  • Ignore Web Site Popups Saying You Have a Virus

This has a slightly more adult feel (despite Futurama graphics) and are american rather than English but might be useful for some.
