Hey guys. I was reading Lynn Terry's blog today and came across this post entitled “Don't Publish your Physical Address” and I felt it was important to share with you.
The story is this. Lynn actually had a reader of hers stop by her home to talk with her since she hadn't returned the person's email or phone call (after 24 hour's time). This was someone who found her online and they had never spoken before. Not cool (to say the least).
Please, please, if you're doing business online and have an ezine or ecourse or mailing list (and are required by the SPAM law to include an address) — get a PO Box. Or, stop by the UPS Store or Mailboxes,etc, if you'd prefer an address that “looks” like a real address.
Sure, the person can “seem” nice enough, but most dangerous people do. This may have been a very nice man, but, it's just better to be safe.
So, my dear readers. Please protect yourself.
That's all for today.
