 Ladies,

I can't express this enough that personal information in open sites such as Cafemom/Facebook can be Google and used. All Cafemom owned groups are open BUT member owned group can be private and the owner has the right to make each forum private. 40ish and beyond ONLY has ONE OPEN forum and that The Let's Talk. If you place any personal information or pictures the admin team will move the post without sending you a message. Please use the General forum for personal information as it is a private forum and PLEASE never give out your address/phone number to anyone you don't know.

Sisters, YOU have to protect yourself and by limiting personal inforamtion in open forums and groups can be a start. Also this message is to those who just toss out personal mail without tearing it up. Your personal information can be used for just about anything and I will give you a perfect example.

I am not sure how but these people got my name and my hubs name and my phone number. They used me as a personal reference BUT used my first name and my hubs first name as my last name. But I can tell you I am going to be more careful with any personal documents and even information that I share from now on.

40ish and beyond will do what we can to protect your privacy but we need your help as well. If you see any private pictures or personal information that should be moved please contact a admin and we will move the post. If you are in another group and see personal pictures used and they belong in 40ish please let us know as well so we can take care of it. :) 

IF any lurker come into 40ish to take personal pictures or information from our closed forum we will report you as the TOS rules state that using personal information can get you ban from CM.

Thank you all for being the best part of 40ish... :)

I did, but it took over 15 minutes to remove it. I can't sleep now. The whole thing was very upsetting and scary.
