YOU ANSWERED 10 OF 10 QUESTIONS CORRECTLY
well done Rich, you must be some kind of Internets genius.
most readers here will get at least 8/10
didnt read the text in any of them, but as my english is pretty bad anyway i wouldnt have picked up on most of the gramatical mistakes.
i tend to rely on logo and web addresses to sort the wheat from the chaff

9/10, got the last one wrong. The actual website ones were easy to spot.
9/10 also the Capital site. But i never visited any of the sites except paypal. I didnt check for gramar at all (hard to see for me as a non native speaking) , but just looked at how the site is build and afcourse the url. So for me this is a excelent score
10/10 although couple were tricky
Grammar was key for me too.
I'm exactly the same
I feel so ashamed
9/10, which I think is pretty good as I almost never use the websites in the examples. Grammar tells all... When are they going to learn to hire native speakers to write the text for them? There are lots of people who would do it.
IMHO, while this is interesting and informative, I'm not sure how accurate it is as a test. How many of those mistakes would you really have caught if you weren't looking for them? To me, the giveaway is the email telling you to follow a link to resubmit your sensitive data, not the appearance of the site itself.
Amazon one I got wrong, but like others said; I usually look at the address first. Q4 I got wrong as well apparently. Looking at the from field is a good way at seeing if it's legitimate. I never said it was full proof though!
Generally, with the account ones I just looked at what info they were asking for. If they want my full address and DOB and mother's maiden name etc. I'm going to be suspicious.
Amazon one was the only one I got wrong, so a 9/10.
Got 9/10. The funny thing is at half of them the reasons they state for them to be wrong. Were not what made me choose them
Guess I kinda went on instinct...
But this isn't for nerds, this is for mummy's and daddys who think technology is wireless tv remote.
