Divulging personal information on the net

Do you divulge personal information when signing up in a program in the internet? Do you give your real name, address, telephone number and email address when asked for it? This is really bothering me. For some time now, I have registered for so many money making sites and whenever I am asked of my personal information, I always have second thoughts if I am to give my real name.Is it REALLY SAFE to divulge disclose such information? Is it really true that identity theft happens? Any experiences?

I also used to sign up in many websites and the form which asks all the information about myself makes me so bored that , i always give my name and address as if giving another name will make us forget the content in the site.so don have any problem regarding this.

Yeah, that's the problem with not putting your real infos. You tend to forget everything that you have written. So you mean you use real infos all the time?

I Use my real name and everything on Sites that I Trust but other sites I just use a fake name and my Old Address and phone Numbers are also Fake to. To Many sites sell your information to other people to make themselves more Money. Have a Great Day
