    Anti virus is needed for people who are not very tech – savvy, and could be prone to clicking on links received in emails.

    The better idea is educating to never trust a stranger that calls you, and never send money in any method other than a credit card or online banking bill payment.

A Risky TLD is verification that the domain name is not to be trusted.
