A Fresh Look at Fraud features psychologists, criminologists, and computer scientists to address the state-of-the-art research on the rising problem of fraud, scams, and financial abuse, stimulating a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, theories, methods, and practices.
In this timely volume, Yaniv Hanoch and Stacey Wood bring together leading international researchers to discuss and review state-of-the-art research in fraud research, adopting diverse methodologies (from experimental to neuroimaging), perspectives, and questions. The book addresses topics such as mass marketing fraud, financial exploitation, ageing and cyber fraud, risk factors associated with becoming a fraud victim and online/cryptocurrency fraud. It offers a holistic picture of emerging trends and issues in fraud research and also includes discussion of the ‘Next Frontiers’ in research and important insights on how to create solutions.
This book will be a crucial read for practitioners and researchers engaged in fraud research and other fields such as Forensic Psychology, Social Psychology, Criminal Behavior, and Criminology, as well as for postgraduates training in these fields.
