(BOSTON, Mass. – June 5, 2008 – IDTheftSecurity.com) Robert Siciliano, a personal security and identity theft expert speaker and CEO of IDTheftSecurity.com, will appear in “THS Investigates: Dating Nightmares,” an episode of the series “E! True Hollywood Stories.” The episode will run on June 6. In it, Siciliano and others will share advice on how to avoid dangerous cyber relationships, Internet child predators, swindling suitors, psychopaths, stalkers, and more. Readers may view YouTube video of the show’s trailer. Information on show times is available at E! Online.
“This show is a must-see for any single in the dating game,” said Siciliano. “While singles have far more options than ever before to meet their match, the new ways of finding that special someone are also fraught with dangers. Anyone who’s dating, especially women and those who are dating online, must educate themselves.”
Member of the Bank Fraud & IT Security Report‘s editorial board, Siciliano leads Fortune 500 companies and their clients through consumer education workshops that explore security solutions for business and individuals. A longtime identity theft speaker, he has discussed data security and consumer protection on CNBC, on NBC’s “Today Show,” FOX News Network, and elsewhere.
“Parents must also pay specific attention as well,” said Siciliano. The show features children under the age of 18 who have become victims of Internet predators. “It is essential that concerned parents understand the risks their children face while on the computer. The days of simply telling your kids not to talk to strangers are over. Today, those strangers could be right in the child’s bedroom chatting online and even exchanging lewd photographs.”
“Another danger surrounding online dating is identity theft,” Siciliano continued. “Social engineers will often gain the trust of another through social media websites. These include dating sites. Those who date online must arm themselves with the knowledge they need to avoid criminals’ traps.”
