Online Fraud Report 2006

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 1, 2006

Press release: “A new cyber security study released today highlights the difference between perception and reality of consumers’ awareness of online scams and their actual online behavior. While 87 percent of consumers polled said they were confident they could recognize fraudulent e-mails, 61 percent failed to identify a legitimate e-mail. Most respondents categorized all e-mails in the study as fake, even though one of them was legitimate. The Online Fraud Report has been sponsored by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a central clearinghouse for cyber security awareness and education for home users, small businesses and the education community, and Bank of America.”
