This infographic provides some great information about internet scams and tips for double-checking their legitimacy. The list is organized, clear, and easy-to-read, and the helpful tips at the bottom strengthen the piece overall. However, this infographic is not necessarily an infographic. It is more like an illustrated listicle. The pictures in the "Top 10" section encapsulate the text, and provide a nice break from reading, but the majority of the information here is still dependent upon words. In addition, the final section could use more visuals. In terms of design, the pastel color scheme is pleasing to the eyes, but selecting a more limited palette of colors will create a comprehensive theme for the infographic, and a unified viewing experience. The text is clear, but revising one more time to make the language more concise will benefit the messaging. Overall, we'd give this a C.
