When you meet someone for the first time, four questions pop subconsciously in your mind:
1) Who is this person?
2) What do they want?
3) How long is it going to take?
4) Are they a threat?
This reaction mode is necessary to keep us safe from danger and become defensive when we perceive a threat. Cybercriminals are masters in leveraging emotional intelligence to make sure you don’t perceive their interaction as a threat. They use pretext with information, words, and language to build rapport, so you become comfortable.
When you feel comfortable, you are likely to trust more and divulge sensitive data – it is human nature.
