The Psychology of Mass Market Scams
Mass Marketing scams (MMS) extract an enormous financial, social, and physical toll on millions of individuals across the globe. Yet, there is limited understanding of what factors contribute to an individual’s likelihood to respond to these solicitations. To address this gap, we have begun a new line of research designed to better understand the tactics used in MMS by the perpetrators as well as individual differences in susceptibility. We have several projects in this line of research including an analysis of risk assessment, vulnerability in older adults, and interventions to decrease consumers’ risk to these scams.
