Have you ever received a scam or a virus warning, panicked and immediate shared it with the intention of saving all your friends from this malicious attack, only to find out later on it was all a hoax?
Welcome to my very first training! Many more to come, but this time I wanted to create a training about something I don't think is talked about enough!

Did you then try to inform people about your mistake or were you too embarrassed to do correct your mistake or did you perhaps think it couldn't hurt anyone to forward that warning?
