+ - Men fall harder than women for Internet fraud-> 1

bednarz writes "Data compiled from more than 206,000 complaints received last year by the U.S. Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) shows that men lost $1.67 to every $1 lost by women in online fraud. "Historically men were more apt to purchase large ticket items like electronics ... that could explain a lot of it," said John Kane, an IC3 research manager. The difference is also due to the fact that certain types of schemes — like investment fraud — seem to suck men in. The IC3 is the clearinghouse for online crime complaints in the U.S., and its database is used by regulators and law enforcement to get a picture of criminal trends. It's a joint effort run by the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center."
