      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Target: Children's Data

Recommended Posts

While I am not applauding the business model (it is illegal) I do the business planning for the long term. Online criminals are harvesting the identity details of children, regardless of age, saving them in databases until the data returns now 18 or similar target age. Then applying for credit cards, etc.


Please when discussing online concerns, i.e. bullying, also bring up the hazards of sharing details that can allow others to take their credit.


Sadly the emphasis remains on the consumer not the issuer. Even after the agony and effort (up to 2-years) of getting out from under the imposed mess, the data remains in all sorts of crevasses (and the credit reporting agencies are major culprits) ready to bite them again in the future.


Be aware and make your children aware. Computer security and online behaviour awareness are a part of today's personal safety. And future financial well being.
