We’ve spoken many times here on the Scammercast about the crucial role that emotions play in scams and frauds. Emotions overpower and send offline your thinking brain, where your trusty “scam detector” lives. We have one entire episode devoted to the importance of emotions (plug the 5 FLAGS episode), and today we’re going to go deeper with Marti DeLiema of the Stanford Longevity Research Institute as she tells us about the research she’s been conducting that sheds light on how scammers get reasonable and intelligent people to fall prey to scammers. You won’t want to miss this episode of The Scammercast.
