Unit 4- Student Friendly Scam Scenario “Forgot Apple ID Password”


You receive an email reportedly from Apple saying that your Apple ID account needs to be reset. The look of the email looks virtually identical to previous emails you have from Apple in the past. However, the email is from a random email that is not Apple; when clicking on the link, it is not HTTPS and is unsecured and it wants you to give them your credit card credentials. Scammers can copy and paste the HTML and CSS of websites to mimic legitimate websites. With this scenario, you would identify the aspects of the example email that look suspect or “phishy” and tell them about phishing scams and how to spot them. You break students up into small groups, and then each one shares the clues that indicate it is a scam email to the class.
