Fortuna Police have been made aware of a marketing letter being sent to Fortuna residents that appears to originate from a Neighborhood Watch group. The letter is not from a Neighborhood Watch group, it is a marketing scheme from Nextdoor.
The troubling part of this letter is that it lists a resident of the neighborhood in question by name, and lists their street name.
Residents have been cautioned in the past to make sure that they read all of the permissions, and fine print before registering for any online application.
While some of these apps can be helpful in keeping you in touch with neighbors, you are also giving up some of your privacy. Your personal information is often shared with other subscribers, marketing schemes, and third parties.
