People with more education are more frequently victims of fraud than those with less education, the Justice Department says.
And the young are victimized more frequently than the old.
The results were contained in a study of fraud against individuals and households released Tuesday by the department’s National Institute of Justice.
Sixteen percent of those with at least a high school diploma were victimized by fraud, the study found. That was twice the rate, 8 percent, at which high school dropouts were victimized.
