My scam experience stemmed from my desire for a outcome, purchasing products for resale in my business. This was a blind side to my recognition of the scam, as the prices were really good without being ridiculous. So I gave them my money = no products came.
The most important part of my experience was that I wanted an outcome that was much more favourable than I even anticipated without being totally unreasonable. So I didn’t do my homework, or didn’t have my eyes wide open.
I think a part of a cyber security course should be briefly looking at why students are online. What are they looking for, what do they want from a situation. If someone presents a good-enough-to-be-true situation do I have the awareness to still spot problems, carry out due diligence, or “check my gut feeling”?
