I've never been tbh, the classic scams of Nigerian prince that wants to give you money or Russian foid that wants to meet you are too obvious and you have to have the IQ of a rock to fail for those but others are very well done and seem convicing, like fake stores with very similar names to real stores, products in the ad very different from reality, etc. In my family sometimes I've helped preventing scams just using common sense like looking for reviews of online stores or checking the e-mail addresses, I remember my dad thought he got an e-mail from his bank but I told him to check the e-mail address and there you could see it was a scammer. I remember once my friend was scammed, he wanted a new phone and bought it on a website where it was like 100€ cheaper than in other stores. It said that they were low in inventory so the phone would take between 14 and 21 days to arrive. Of course phone never came in the mail kek.
