MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow criminal police recommends citizens not to leave their personal information in Internet social networks and in stores.
The recommendation was given by Moscow deputy police head and chief of the Moscow criminal police department Oleg Baranov on Tuesday.
According to the official, Internet users, including well-known persons, often leave information about themselves in social networks and in stores that hold various advertising actions. It concerns, in particular, women. When stores hold their actions, women with readiness fill in forms, but not all of the stores ensure that the data will not be spread, Baranov told reporters.
The data left in such forms may be used to commit crimes, the official noted, adding that the criminal police fight such crimes.
As an example, he cited the kidnapping of widely-known programmer Yevgeny Kaspersky's son. In that case, the kidnappers took the information about him from his personal site in the social network.
