Navigating the Internet Without Falling Prey to Scams

Welcome to "Safe Surfing: Navigating the Internet Without Falling Prey to Scams," a comprehensive course designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to protect yourself from online threats and scams. In today's digital age, the internet is an invaluable resource for communication, entertainment, and information. However, it also poses significant risks, especially to those who may not be as familiar with its pitfalls.

This course is tailored specifically for elderly internet users, providing easy-to-understand guidelines, practical advice, and real-life scenarios to help you recognize and avoid common online scams. Whether you're browsing the web, checking emails, or interacting on social media, our goal is to ensure you can enjoy all the benefits of the internet while staying safe from fraudsters and cybercriminals.

Through engaging stories, like that of Emily and her unexpected lottery win, and interactive quizzes, you'll learn to:

  • Identify suspicious emails and messages.
  • Protect your personal and financial information.
  • Apply critical thinking to offers that seem too good to be true.
  • Use the internet confidently, knowing you have the tools to safeguard your online presence.

Key Points to Discuss:

  1. Legitimacy Check: Always verify the authenticity of unexpected wins or offers.
  2. Personal Information Protection: Never share personal or banking details unless you're absolutely sure of the recipient's legitimacy.
  3. Critical Thinking: Apply the principle, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
