Announcing the new book A Fresh Look at Fraud, Dr. Stacey Wood said, "Consistent evidence shows that the emotional costs of fraud are more distressing than economic costs in survey research of fraud victims. I found in my research that victims of fraud are similar to other crime victims. They are left with increased stress, anger, self-blame, and damaged relationships. They also have a loos of confidence and an increased risk of suicide. This is so much more than just a loss of money or change in financial behavior."
Stacey Wood is a Molly Mason Jones Professor of Psychology at Scripps College, USA, while Yaniv Hanoch is an Associate Professor of Risk Management, at Southampton University Business School, Southampton University, UK.
The book A Fresh Look at Fraud will be a crucial read for practitioners and researchers engaged in fraud research and other fields such as Forensic Psychology, Social Psychology, Criminal Behavior, and Criminology, as well as for postgraduate training in these fields.
