Use Caution with your DOB

:eek: :eek: With all the Identity Theft rampant today, not to mention the spammers phishing of TUG ads, I would strongly caution anyone using a complete date of birth.

With just a little research in less than half an hour, a thief could gather enough information to cause problems for you. :mad:

It's nice to know more info and meet up with TUGgers on vacation, but it's too easy to be had with that kind of personal info.

I would suggest an age or year only for that purpose.

Perhaps a month and year, but that's pushing it too.

So as not to spoil the fun, Happy Birthday to all those born in June. :)

Sean :eek:

I chose not to enter my date of birth for that very reason. Thanks for bringing it to public attention.
