Does the title of this week's episode creep you out?  Good, because more and more intimate personal information is available online about each and every one of us than is "healthy."  Worse still is that's it's all too easy to become a victim of cyberstalking.  That's because most of us disseminate far too much personal information on social nets, in chatrooms,and via photo and video sharing services.  It's also far too easy to get the vast majority of us to volunteer even more intimate details regarding our religious and political affiliations, income, sexual orientation, and health-related issues. Worst of all, there are companies and cybercriminals that profit from this glut of easily obtained information. The result? We're all putting our personal and financial futures at risk.  During this episode we'll show you how easy it is to glean reams of information about nearly anyone -- and importantly -- what you need to do to keep yourself from getting caught with your pants down.  And if that doesn't creep you out, I don't know what will.
