Totally believable.  Most adults can’t tell the difference either, haha.

For example:  I have a friend that runs a financial planning firm in Dallas.  He handles millions of dollars in people’s assets, has a degree from a well resected university and has multiple certifications in his field.  Smart guy, right?  Yes, absolutely — but he still can’t tell immediately abcnews.com.co is fake.  I had to point out a fake article that he shared recently.  He was embarrassed, but with how deceiving things are these days… who can blame someone for being fooled??
