Romance fraud


Understanding Society is a longitudinal survey that captures life in the UK in the 21st century. Every year we ask each member of thousands of the same households across the UK about different aspects of their life.


In each episode of our Insights podcast series we’re exploring how our data has been used in a key area. We’ll look at what we found, what it tells us and what we can learn from it.


In this episode we’re looking at romance fraud – where people are deceived for financial gain by someone they thought they were in a relationship with. Our guests this week are Dr David Buil-Gil (a Lecturer in Quantitative Criminology at the University of Manchester), Róisín Ryan-Flood (Professor of Sociology and Director of the Centre for Intimate and Sexual Citizenship at the University of Essex) and David Gillies (Prevent and Protect Fraud Officer for Essex Police).
