Dear members of scamvictimsunited,
I am currently carrying out a research project entitled "Online Identity Theft - what is your mothers maiden name?".
The aims of the research is to gauge public awareness and knowledge of online identity theft. It will also examine precautions people take when giving information on the internet.
This research has been approved by the IADT Ethics Committee. As a participant, you are asked to complete this survey as efficiently as is possible.
The results of this study will be kept strictly confidential. None of the data collected will be released without your prior written consent. The information you provide will only have your demographic information and not your name on it.
Participation is voluntary. There are no apparent risks to the participant from taking part in this study. Please let the researcher know if you experience any discomfort at any time or if you wish to revoke your consent to participate.
The information collected throughout this study may be used for scientific and educational purposes. It may be presented/published/reproduced in books and journal articles. However, anonymity of participants will remain.
I would be most grateful if you would take part in the study as I would like to show how exactly people are affected by online fraud etc. I was almost a victim of an online scam and I know I now act differently online than before.
Please follow this link to completed the study which should take less than 10 minutes:http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=E ... xleQ_3d_3d
Best wishes and thank you in advance for any feedback etc.
