Question. 2 (5 Marks)
Cybercrime is criminal activity that involves a computer, networked device or a network. The ubiquity of internet connectivity has enabled an increase in the volume and pace of cybercrime activities because the criminal no longer needs to be physically present when committing a crime. The internet’s speed, convenience, anonymity and lack of borders make computer-based variations of financial crimes.
Let’s consider a case where Marie has received an email from an unknown email id pretending to be the president of some mega company. In the email she was informed that she has won a huge amount of money through a lottery and has been asked to provide her bank account details, so that the winning amount could be transferred to her bank account. You are required to identify the cybercrime (s) which are most probably happening here? Also mention any two prevention measures to avoid such types of cybercrimes
Best of Luck
