Security tip: Don’t ever digitize your signature online

Although digitizing signatures seems very personal and such a witty thing to do, it’s in actuality something you NEVER should do regardless on internal memos, newsletters, or whatever.
Why? You’re basically letting the world know how you sign for things. And from a identity theft perspective, that’s just one other thing that thieves don’t have to bother with scamming off you since they’ll already have access to it.
Digital signatures can not only be reproduced, but it gives people a way to learn how to write your signature and forge checks, sign for documents, and all sorts of other “fun” things. All in all? Just not a good idea. So don’t be leaving your John Hancock online unless you really like to play with fire.
