A GUIDE ON PERSONAL SECURITY Part 8


§ 
Whenever you receive a call that your application for employment is receiving consideration and requested to send recharge cards when you never even submitted any application letter to such organization, ignore it as it is 419.


§  When you receive a mail saying that “This is to notify you that your account has been placed on hold pending additional electronic verification to avoid suspension follow the instruction below and if you do not respond with five (5) working days you will not be able to log into your account and it will be closed” it is 419.


Security refers to all measures in use or that can be applied to frustrate the activities of a saboteur. The importance to security or the degree measure necessary for guaranteeing relative safety of individuals and households vary from one society to another. The more sophisticated a society is, the higher the level of security measures that will be required for safety of life and property.

Whichever way we look at security, it is pertinent to understand that every society requires some form of good security measures in place to remain relatively safe. For instance, no rational investor would invest his hard earned resources in an environment where the security of his life and investment cannot be readily guaranteed. When such fears persist, economic growth suffers.

In other words, no meaningful development can take place in any environment where the security of life and property of citizens and investors is not considered and treated as a priority.

In today’s globalized would, the importance of security cannot be overemphasized. It is therefore an important personal responsibility to oneself as well as others around us to remain security conscious at all times to minimize the many risks to our lives and property.
