“Porn name” scam

I guess there is a new scam going around.  It is in the form of a Twitter “game” (I am sure that Facebook will have a version soon too) where you are asked to post your “porn name”.  It tells you that your porn name is a combination of your pet’s name, the street you live on and your mother’s maiden name.  Well, this is also the same info many people use as their passwords or the security question for people’s bank accounts so if you post it then you have given out that private info and people could get into your accounts.

 

Be careful!
