Unit 4- Find the ‘hint’

To comply with the primary Australian Curriculum of resources which are suitable for children, I created a fake scam which is child friendly and likely for a child to come across.


“Enter your email address below for 100 FREE points in this game”

(The hint to the children is getting a ‘free’ reward for entering their personal details)


This would be a way of the game creators taking visible footprints of this persons information and storing it into their systems. By taking this personal information, the game creators could hack into personal email information or use the address to hack into other websites/ create fake profiles using that information. The email address could also be used to send other scams to the person venerable and compel the user to fall for other email link scams.
