Clearly, in this scenario the message is a scam. Once students recognise the difference between the fake and real message they could have turns at making their own fake message to give to their friend and in a role play situation students can act out what they would do if they received a scam email or message. Students could use the scenario above then to identify why it is a scam and explain why it is fake.
