Abstract

Love scam or online love traps are commercial crimes where criminals establish false-love relationships with women to deceive them in terms of monetary and sexual gains. Criminals used various cyber platforms to approach the potential victims; and social media like Facebook is one of the most frequently used platforms. This study was conducted to assess the knowledge and protective practice of love scam among female Facebook users in Malaysia. This study employed a quantitative approach as a survey method by distributing questionnaires. A total of 609 female Facebook users in Malaysia were recruited in this study using a purposive sampling technique. The analysis of each item for the knowledge and practice domains indicates the diversity of responses among respondents. The findings also showed that majority of the respondents have high levels of knowledge and protective practice towards love scams. Pearson correlation analysis also showed a positive and significant relationship (r = 0.30, p <0.05) between domains of knowledge and protective practice towards love scams. The comparison test of the mean score of knowledge and protective practice of love scam found that there were no significant differences based on respondents’ history of being a love scam’s victim but was found to be significantly different based on the history of friends, acquaintances or family members being the victims of love scam. The findings of this study can be a baseline to measure and monitor the level of knowledge and protective practice of love scam among female social media users in Malaysia.
