Ok i know social engineering is illegal but out of curiosity how do you do it? How do you find people that are stupid enough to give you their password? Where do you start?
And remember this. Its just out of curiosity.

Just send it to randoms and just wait.

Never done it but that is what i'm guessing you would do.

It is not that they are so stupid but not informed.

But it should be obvious that you should give away your password. Like we all see the sign in our emails saying dont give out your password. And is social engineering not the lazy version of a phishing scam?

Some of it can be just stupid.

"There are two popular methods, one involving hosting a game and watching incoming traffic and another basically asking the victim “YO WUT IZ UR IP ADDY?” Both seem to work quite well when dealing with pre-teens."
