In this workshop, we will explore the fascinating world of scams and scammers in the real and digital worlds, both past and present. Some scammers are infamous and have been prosecuted, but countless scammers operate without being exposed. Possible topics include bank scams, pyramid and Ponzi schemes, dating scams, phishing, email scams, classic swindles, “black widows”, food scams, “reality TV”, rental and real estate scams, as well as any other scams and scammers members wish to research. Members will be asked to present on a topic of their choice.
