Save yourself n Save Others

About this Blog

Internet is a vulnerable place and we, the innocent people are victims of some dirty tricks played on it. Trap We being technology slaves can’t stay away from it, today it wouldn’t be wrong if we say Internet is now a part of our life and comes just after our basic needs: food, water, air, and shelter! Internet, a network around the world, is one of the best things happened to us, every good thing is just a click away from us but the bad thing doesn’t even wait for that click, its just there for us, add to this most of the time we are unaware, have no idea that someone in the dark is playing games with us.

Now why do the bad guys take advantage of this technology against us, why do we get more spam emails than genuine mails, why do we fall prey to online frauds, why do we believe in email hoaxes, why do our personal accounts get hacked, how can someone at very far can hijack our systems… many more questions… but the answers are very simple and no the bad guys aren’t smarter than us but it is our innocence, ignorance, unawareness that’s making us weak and susceptible to online attacks and above all we are emotional fools, we tend to trust anonymous calls for help, which is why not only we get hurt, unintentionally we involve others and they suffer too.

Save Yourself Save Yourself! Let’s not get wounded by such attempts. With a little MORE knowledge about the dark side of Internet we can SAVE OURSELVES AND SAVE OTHERS!
This blog is an attempt to make people aware of all such things like Spam emails, online frauds, Email Hoaxes etc and also includes services we can do for the betterment of the society off the net.

You can contribute too! If you have this kind of information, please share with others; send it to me – “dineshgajhiye (at) sify.com” and I will be happy to post it on this Awareness blog for public. Let’s do some social service on the web!

  3. It will be great helpful if we give the followup or at least updating for the posts.

    For example this Post: https://publicawareness.wordpress.com/2006/11/14/help-a-child-in-need/

    This mail came to my mail box many times. When i search for it through blogs there are comments as “This is a Case which Police Closed already. But because of the forwarded Mail Nirmala Sisubhavan is getting so many calls which is really annoying them. ”

    If that is the Situation, then this forwards may be simply irritating her than doing any help.

    I am requesting here, since this blog name itself (publicawareness)gives some hope, that we will get correct info from here.

    It will be great if the contributor of this blog give some correct followup
