Description - Cyber Frauds, Scams and their Victims by Mark Button

Crime is undergoing a metamorphosis. The online technological revolution has created new opportunities for a wide variety of crimes which can be perpetrated on an industrial scale, and crimes traditionally committed in an offline environment are increasingly being transitioned to an online environment.

This book takes a case study-based approach to exploring the types, perpetrators and victims of cyber frauds. Topics covered include:

  • An in-depth breakdown of the most common types of cyber fraud and scams.
  • The victim selection techniques and perpetration strategies of fraudsters.
  • An exploration of the impact of fraud upon victims and best practice examples of support systems for victims.
  • Current approaches for policing, punishing and preventing cyber frauds and scams.

This book argues for a greater need to understand and respond to cyber fraud and scams in a more effective and victim-centred manner. It explores the victim-blaming discourse, before moving on to examine the structures of support in place to assist victims, noting some of the interesting initiatives from around the world and the emerging strategies to counter this problem. This book is essential reading for students and researchers engaged in cyber crime, victimology and international fraud.
