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:

Best wishes and thank you in advance for any feedback etc.

Karen Reilly

FYI all . . . I have spoken with Karen about this project and looked at an earlier draft of the survey. This is legit and I would encourage you to help her out.

Hi all,
Thanks to any of you who have completed my online questionnaire.
I am having difficulty finding victims of Online Identity theft to complete the survey (for obvious reasons). So if you have any free time at all, I would be delighted if you could take part in this study.
The aims of the research are to show the different anxiety levels experienced by non victims and victims and also to see if victims of ID theft take more precautions when using the internet than non victims.

I would be so grateful if you could take part in the study.
Thanks a lot!
Karen

Karen,
I noticed that the link above does not take people to YOUR survey, but just the main site. You might want to edit that or post the link again.
