    Meeting up with people you don't know.
    Chatting to strangers online.

    (b) Why do you think she succumbed so easily to the temptations that eventually led her to be a victim?
    She trusted him to not take advantage of her.

    (c) Why is it so easy to assume a different persona online?
    There is no physical harm you can do online and not much evidence you can leave online to lead to who you really are. You are basically hiding behind your screen because you can remain anonymous.

  7. (A) She could be blackmailed if she listened and accepted the strangers request.
    She could be involved with the police and lose her friends.
    She could be kidnapped.
    (B) She did not know the person but the person's way of talking made it seem like he is a nice guy.
    It is in the cyber world and not real life so she could not judge the person properly and simply thought that he is a nice guy.
    (C) Others do not know you and online, it is like you have a mask.

  12. (a) What are the cyber dangers presented in the scenario?
    The cyber dangers present in this video is the girl meeting a stranger online, that led to her eventually going out with the man she met online. This is dangerous because the man could have ulterior motives other than to have a relationship with the girl (which is still illegal) such as kidnapping her and demanding money from her parents, etc.

    (b) Why do you think she succumbed so easily to the temptations that eventually led her to be a victim?
    I think she succumbed so easily to the man as she does not know the dangers of the internet well, so she thinks that she is going out with a nice, honest man.

    (c) Why is it so easy to assume a different persona online?
    It is not easy to identify someones true identity online, thus many people can just create fake accounts, use someone else's pictures or name. People on the internet could also use a fake persona and you would never know as you cannot see through the screen, so as long as you don't have to see or talk to the person in real life, they could continue pretending to me someone else.
