Online Impersonation in Securities Scams
May-June 2004 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 82-85
Mark F. Vilardo, US Securities and Exchange Commission
In cyberspace, securities scammers gain the trust of unwitting investors through a variety of means. Perhaps the most insidious of these involves a form of online impersonation in which the perpetrator uses the Internet?s technical capabilities to create bogus online content that mimics information from trusted sources. In this installment of Secure Systems, I briefly explore the use of various impersonation techniques by persons charged in US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement actions alleging market manipulation and fraud.
Index Terms:
SEC, Securities and Exchange Commission, impersonation, digital identity, fraud
