Very Important Information:
YOUR Safety & Privacy within ANY World Wide Web (www)-based group.
Please be completely aware of the highly unpleasant circumstances that YOU may cause to yourself, immediate family members, friends, neighbors and other parties by voluntarily providing your very precious and sensitive personal information to complete strangers.
These are some examples of confidential information: date of birth with the exact year; full names and intimate descriptions of immediate family members, their spouses and children; home, job, school, undisclosed temporary shelter, e-mail addresses; immigration status (unlawful presence in the U.S., i.e. expired I-94; lack of work permit from USCIS; political asylee, refugee, government witness (S visa), victim of violent crime, torture or human trafficking (T/U visas), etc); home, job, cellphone, Social Security, passport, bank account numbers; your important passwords; philosophical, political or religious beliefs; health history, medication prescribed by a doctor, etc.
You may want to listen and perhaps write down the honest and possibly accurate information offered freely by unknown individuals to all ready, willing and eager ears, but DO NOT REVEAL anything confidential about yourself and others -if you feel uncomfortable for any reason.
YOU do have control over what you want to say during a face-to-face meeting or a telephone conversation.
