A fifth of adults have put themselves at ‘significant’ risk of internet fraud

A fifth of adults have put themselves at ‘significant’ risk of internet fraud by oversharing on social media, according to a study. Birthday dates, names of pets, phone numbers and even their home address, are among the personal details most commonly shared by the 2,000 adults polled. But despite this, 29 per cent of adults think they’ll never be a victim of online fraud - an over confidence that could cost them. The Lloyds Bank research found 30 per cent have no idea if the data they’ve uploaded to the likes of Twitter and Facebook could leave them vulnerable to crime.
