Internet Fraud & Scams

As the Internet is becoming an everyday way of communication, it is also becoming an avenue for fraud. Unfortunately, fraud and scams are increasing  rapidly on the Internet. In order to protect your privacy, Hevanet does not give, sell, or divulge any member information to anyone. Furthermore, we do not acknowledge to anyone who our members are and keep member information strictly confidential. We also recommend that our members use common sense and caution when giving out their personal information on the Internet. Be especially wary of e-mail solicitations and non mainstream web pages. The way you are selective about giving out your information and credit card in the "real world" should also apply online.
