Thank you Rebecca! I live in California and last year in November when lots of credit card numbers were stolen from Target store, I was one of those people who used their credit card during those dates in one of these stores in California but thank God I luckily wasn’t affected. :) When I heard about this at the news, I was scared. :( I went to my bank and reported and they changed my credit card number right away.

the cyber crimes are popular today, these crimes may have a political or military aims or just to steal info. and money like in payment card heist.
information is very important in now days because all companies need it to deliver their advertisements to there target customers.

if there is a mistake in the above sentence please correct it to me

Monday, June 17th 2019

Thank you v.much!
good style of giving information.
but if you’d added some picters, or even some sort of moving pictures (flash for example) iy would be a revolution.
thanks again!
