ID Theft Protect says “online impersonation” is a growing problem… can you verify that the person is who they say? We think probably not! Vint Cerf is a legend at Google – one of the founding fathers… (maybe he’ll come out with a great idea on how to stop this from happening in future???) so we are not surprised to read this. Why bother with “online impersonation”? Simple – “discredit someone” or use for “spam”. What a sad world this is becoming!

Safe surfing folks!
