Cartoon Phishing Email - TeachPrivacy Data Security Training 02 small

This cartoon involves a common phishing scam – the inheritance email. For decades, phishers have been sending out the same email scams. One would think that after a while, people would learn about the common scams, and they wouldn’t work anymore. Unfortunately, people keep falling for the same scams over and over again.  Even a very low response rate still works for hackers because they send out their email messages so widely.
