She would be susceptible now. It’s not about cleverness or naivety. It’s about age. We need to respect and protect our older people. We will become them someday. It always amazes me how many people fall for this kind of scams! It’s an education problem. We should invest in awareness campaigns that educate people, elderly people in particular. Well, I didn’t expect my comment to be that controversial! Anyways, statistically speaking, the majority of people who fall to those scams are elderly people. And one of the main reasons is that they are not familiar with technology and the dark side of the web. Not blaming. Not judging.
Not shaming. It’s a She believed she could but her corgi was asleep on her lap so she didn’t shirt. And I suggested investing in educating them in particular not because I think they are dumb as some people misinterpreted my comment, but because I believe it’s the society’s duty. Most elderly people didn’t have computers, internet, and smartphones until they were in their 60s or so. We can’t expect them to be as familiar with those issues as we, the people who have been using technology for most of their lives, are.
