Abstract

This report presents the results of surveys conducted in conjunction with the 2010 campaign, Online Offensive—Fighting Fraud Online, and the 2011 campaign, Scams: It’s Personal. Overall, in both surveys it was found that a high proportion of respondents had received a scam invitation, however the majority did not respond. Dating scams attracted the highest number of victims in 2010, whereas in 2011, lottery scams were the most common way in which respondents were victimised.
