How Brain Defects Increase Online Gullibility

first_imgIn these enlightened times, you may think that the average Internet user is too sophisticated to be suckered in by online scams. But cyber fraud and theft are growing rapidly despite constant efforts to educate users to the danger. A new study suggests why some people, especially the elderly, seem so susceptible.According to the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft and fraud complaints jumped up to 1.8 million in 2011, a rise of 24.2% from 2010, and 4575 since 2001. The annual report from the FTC’s Consumer Sentinel Network doesn’t break down the (many) fraud categories by what’s online or not, but its a sure bet that many of these scams are conducted via the Internet.Why Warnings Aren’t EnoughIt is frustrating to see so many of these scams succeed, in some cases even after huge amounts of media coverage explicitly warning about the problem and how the fraud.New research from the University of Iowa may suggest an explanation on why this keeps happening.One of the models for how we believe something is true or not is the False Tagging Theory (FTT), which postulates that all ideas are initially believed to be true. Doubt rears its head only when a specific area of the brain, the prefrontal cortex, “tags” an event or an idea as false. The University of Iowa team’s research found that when a very specific part of that area of the brain, the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) is damaged, the doubting system is not as efficient.“Damage to this area of the brain causes a ‘doubt deficit’ that results in greater credulity,” the team wrote in the journal Frontiers in Decision Neuroscience. One of the ways the vmPFC can become damaged? Natural aging.This would help to explain why so many fraud cases seem involved older citizens. A 2009 MetLife Mature Market Institute report, Broken Trust: Elders, Family and Finances, revealed that up to one million older Americans are victims of financial fraud each year, and that number is growing.You would think that, having been around the block a time or two, the elderly might be less prone to fraud victimization. But if a victim’s cognitive mechanism that would normally see through a flam-flam job is not working properly, then it makes sense that they would be easier to fool.How To Avoid Online FraudIf you’re still worried about Internet scams, here’s some simple advice:Have patience. This is the one you should use for every financial proposal. Very rarely does someone really want to give you money, and if they’re in a hurry, something is wrong. If someone pays you too much money and says they trust you to wire the overage back, take your time, no matter what they say. Chances are, whatever check they sent you is about to bounce sky-high. If it clears, then send them the change. Tags:#science#security#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Follow up with phone calls. If someone claiming to be a relative or friend emails from a distant place saying they’re in trouble and need money wired fast, practice patience again. Take five minutes and call that person. Very likely, they haven’t even left home. brian proffitt Your bank already knows everything. If someone calls from your bank or credit card company asking for personal information, remind them you already told them all of that in triplicate when you first signed up for the bank or credit account. Politely hang up, and then call the bank on your own to make sure there isn’t really a problem.Tablets and mobile devices are making it easier for all segments of the population to get online, so the number of potential victims continues to grow. And as long as there are potential marks out there, fraud will never fade away.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts last_img read more

Uber adds public transportation to its app starting with Denver

first_img Mobile Tech Industry Mobile Apps Uber You may be able to use the Uber app to see when your bus is coming. On Thursday the ride-hailing giant rolled out its first integration with public transit. Users in Denver will now see end-to-end directions and real-time information for public transit in the app, thanks to a partnership with the Regional Transportation District. “Our customers want their trips to be as seamless as possible, and a collaboration like this one allows them to plan for travel from end to end, including additional first mile and last mile options,” said David Genova, CEO and general manager of RTD, in a blog post. “RTD is pleased to work with Uber as we present riders with additional, complementary options to most efficiently reach their destination.”This isn’t Uber’s first attempt to become the one-stop shop for transportation. In September, the company launched a new feature called Mode Switch, an in-app tool that lets people see what modes of transportation the company offers in that location, including cars, bikes and scooters. From there, users can choose what transportation they want to use. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said the ride-hailing giant wants “to be the Amazon of transportation.”Riders will see “Transit” next to UberX, Uber Pool and other available options from the ride-hailing company once they enter their destinations. When they select the option, they’ll be able to view available transit routes along with real-time departure and arrival times. Users will see walking directions to and from the transit stations. They’ll also soon be able to buy and use RTD tickets, Uber said.Uber integrated this public transportation information through a partnership with the urban mobility app Moovit, which provides real-time transit data and route planning around the world. Uber said that with this partnership it’ll expand the feature to more cities in coming months.First published Jan. 31, 11:56 a.m. PT.

Modi govt drags Deloitte KPMG affiliate BSR to NCLT seeks 5year ban

first_imgA bird flies next to the logo of IL&FS (Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Ltd.) installed on the facade of a building at its headquarters in Mumbai, India, September 25, 2018.REUTERS/Francis Mascarenhas/File photoThe central government has moved to the National Company Law Tribunal seeking a 5-year ban on auditors Deloitte Haskins & Sells and BSR & Co for alleged irregularities in hiding bad debts of the cash strapped Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS). Financial daily, the Economic Times reported that the centre sought a five-year ban under Section 140 of the Companies Act. Notably, this is the first time the government has invoked this act to debar an auditor. The two firms won’t be allowed to audit any listed or unlisted company, including banks and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), for five years if the proposed punishment is accepted by the NCTL.The NCTL has, in turn, has directed the government to share the 800-page chargesheet filed by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office to the audit firms. The development comes after the lawyers and the executives accused in the case argued that they have not been served with the documents which also includes chargesheet. The firms moreover have also asked for time to prepare to respond to the ministry of corporate affairs’ (MCA) allegations. The government lawyers submitted that they had shared the electronic version of the chargesheet to BSR & Co but Deloitte is yet to receive the same. The firm has 10 days to prepare a case to defend itself as the NCTL set the next hearing date on June 21st. The IL&FS group is facing serious liquidity crisis and has defaulted on interest payments on various debt repayments since 27 August.ReutersThe SFIO in its chargesheet alleged that “The loans were transferred by mere book entry and resulted in the closure of old loans. The new loans didn’t require provisioning or recognition as NPA (non-performing asset). Hence the assignment of the same was prejudicial to the interest of the company. The auditors having the knowledge of the same had not reported the same in the audit report.”It further added that the firms fraudulently helped the IL&FS hid information of various loans, inflated profits and showed that everything is running well. “Investigations revealed that the auditors, along with their engagement teams of IFIN did not perform their duties diligently. The auditors, despite having the knowledge of the funding of the defaulting borrowers for principal and interest payments, failed to report in the auditors’ report for FY 2013-14 to FY 2017-18,” the agency alleged.last_img read more
