BrockUResearch: Consider This is a monthly podcast series launched Sept. 25 by the Office of Research Services and co-produced with Brock University’s radio station, CFBU.
Each month, our researchers tackle an issue of interest to the community. They draw upon their findings, insights and experiences to broaden and deepen understanding in a particular area.
Hosted by Mike Saunders, the podcast departs from the traditional question-and-answer approach. Our researchers – typically from different departments and disciplines – sit at the table and discuss and debate the issue with one another, each adding their unique piece of the puzzle.
March’s podcast is, Deliberate deception: the heads-up on fraud:
Identity theft, bogus investment opportunities, stolen credit card information: in this increasingly technological world, becoming a victim of a fraud is a very real concern.
The Competition Bureau of Canada has named March as being Fraud Prevention Month. Joining us on this topic are Angela Book from the Department of Psychology, Voula Marinos from the Department of Child and Youth Studies, and Teju Herath from the Goodman School of Business, with remarks from Detective Sergeant Paul Spiridi, head of the Niagara Regional Police Service’s Central Fraud Unit.
