I am constantly amazed at the stupidity of people who are trying to build a downline. They will do things online that they would not dream of doing in the "real" world.
For example would you go to the bank, cash your check and then come stand on the street corner waving that check stub and money around annoucing to the world how much you made? If you would do that, I'm sure that the nearest mugger would be happy to relieve you of your cash. Yet people do that every day on the internet.
How many times do you see it on YouTube someone flashing cash and talking about how much they make. Do they really believe it is impossible for someone to find out who they are? It's a completely moronic move in a world where information is so readily available, yet there is a group that is even more idiotic.
These are the ones who will post copies of their checks online. Yes I know they do take a magic marker and black out their name and the name of their bank. Hey moron, you missed the most important information like the exact information a thief needs to access you bank account! They don't really need the bank name or your name!
The last group of morons really take the stupidity crown since they have banded together to create a nice convenient victim list for the average thief! Check out this site. They have willingly provided their name and the city they live in right along with the information on what they are being paid through Paypal.
All it takes to get everything the thieve needs is access to a computer. Run those names through say PeopleFinder and then open an Intellius account and they can get a full top quality report on you! everything from your Personally Identifying Information (PII) to your Non-public Information (NPI). Want to know what they can get from your stupidity in having your name posted on this list?
Social Security Number
Date of Birth
Place of employment
County tax information
Property you own
List of your neighbors and relatives
Even who lives in your house
Would you be dumb enough to just walk up to a stranger and hand them this information? Every time someone else looks at one of the Payment Proof lists, that's exactly what has happened. Is getting someone to join your downline or program really worth this risk?
