Recognizing scams

Tomáš Foltýn for ESET: Scams and flaws: Why we get duped – “What are the emotional triggers and errors in judgment that make you fall for an online scam?”

Unrelated, but on a somewhat similar theme:

Phil Muncaster for Infosecurity Magazine: European Banks and Police Warn Consumers of Cyber Scams – “A dedicated site explains the tell-tale signs of such scams, and what consumers can do to stay safe.”

The site includes documents devoted to:

  • Spoofed Bank Websites
  • Romance Scam
  • Phishing / Vishing / Smishing
  • CEO/Business Email Compromise (BEC) Fraud
  • Investment Scams
  • Invoice Fraud

Adrien Gendre of Vade Secure for Help Net: Who gets spear phished, and why? A good generalist guide to the issue.
