At a conference hosted by the Stanford Center on Longevity and AARP, expert participants agreed on the need for a central repository of research about fraud. This platform serves as that repository, as well as reflecting on and supporting further research.
Here you will find:
- Introduction to fraud-related research
- Research Implications—outlining the actionable implications of the latest research
- Research Archive—summaries and abstracts, searchable by title, author, subject, or date
- Potential Funding—sources for researchers interested in studying topics related to fraud
For this project we define fraud as “the deliberate deception of an individual with the promise of goods, services or other financial benefits that are actually nonexistent, were never intended to be provided, or were grossly misrepresented” (Titus, 1995)
