Mass-marketing fraud

Mass-marketing fraud (MMF) is a type of fraud that exploits mass communication techniques (e.g., email, Instant Messenger, bulk mailing, social networking sites, telemarketing) to con people out of money.

This EPSRC project develops novel techniques to detect and prevent MMF. Through its multi-disciplinary approach and close focus on co-designing the solutions with its range of project partners and testing them in-the-wild during live MMF-detection settings, the project will lead to not only new scientific understanding of the anatomy of MMF but also tools and techniques that can form the basis of practical interventions in tackling such fraud.
