Going on vacation? Don't tell people on social media!

Posting your summer vacation plans online lets thieves know when you won't be home.

Whether your travels take you to the beach or somewhere else, don't share details on social media until after you're home.

That comes from security company ADT, which reports summer as the season with the most burglaries.

Lock your doors no matter how long you're away, and trim your hedges so no one can hide behind them.

The folks at Money Gram also say tipping off thieves on social media can make your relatives a target of so-called "family scams."

That's an urgent phone call or email to wire money because of a vacation emergency.
