Scenarios – could be emails or links on Twitter:
- Helping a charity – malware link disguised as a donation link
- ‘I forgot to send you this file’ (actually happened to me on my messages on my mobile phone today). Link was in the message. I deleted it straight away – unknown sender.
- Going to uni – alternate pathways – hurry offer only lasts one hour! Click on link to find out more.
Example of Fake Scam Email:
(insert photos of global warming, people suffering, fancy heading, a few sentences)
