dc.description.abstract Worldwide, individuals are losing their money and identity to online fraud. To combat victimisation, prevention approaches generally focus on different types of online fraud and how they occur. This article examines online fraud prevention, exemplified through the publication entitled The Little Black Book of Scams. It argues this approach is characterised by ‘white noise’, in that it presents an overwhelming amount of detail about online fraud which obscures what should be a straightforward message. Overall, this article argues online prevention approaches need to avoid excessive ‘white noise’ and focus on a simplistic key message, around the protection of money and personal information.
