Billions of dollars are lost each year due to identity theft and credit card fraud, but how does this affect people's attitudes to divulging personal information online?

Billions of dollars are lost each year due to identity theft and credit card fraud, but how does this affect people's attitudes towards divulging personal information online?

In this week's edition of Whaddyareckon? we ask which sites people trust with their personal data, how they tell if a website or email is dodgy, how secure they are with passwords and credit card details, and if they've ever been stung by fraud or identity theft.

Has this ever happened to you? Leave your comments below.

Got a suggestion for our next episode of Whaddyareckon? Post it in our Whaddyareckon? forum thread and be in the running to win a DVD prize pack.
