Online dating fraud : research, findings & action
This was an invited lecture that Prof Whitty gave to the online dating industry at a conference called 'iDate' in Cologne. This talk presented the research findings and suggested ways that dating companies should protect their clients as well as support clients who have already been defrauded. Mr Tim Ford from the Serious Organised Crime Agency added a 10 minute talk to this 1 hour presentation to provide the UK law enforcement's perspective.
