It is so important to equip students with the knowledge and skills to identify and protect themselves against a scam. A student-friendly scam scenario that could be given to students in a classroom setting to teach them these critical thinking skills is below. Students could be asked to identify the give-aways that the following email is a scam:
Email: WIN a brand new IPHONE 13! Click here to answer this quiz to claim your free iPhone!”
Students should spot:
- Spelling errors
- Use of all capitals
- No company name attached
- Lucrative offer (free iPhone)
- Request to click a link
Students should be taught to delete any suspicious emails without opening or clicking anything.
