What traits do victims of online fraud share, and how can you protect yourself from becoming a victim? The answers to these questions and more may be found in a new national study released today by AARP which identifies an online victim profile based on 15 key behaviors and life experiences that increase a person’s vulnerability to online fraud. The report, “ Caught in the Scammer’s Net,” a national survey of 11,000 adults, finds that 34 million Internet users may be at increased risk of being victimized based on this new profile.
