David Friedman on Impostor Scams

Season 1, Ep. 622

In this episode, David A. Friedman, Professor of Law at Willamette University College of Law, discusses his article "Impostor Scams," which will be published in the Michigan Journal of Law Reform. Friedman begins by explaining what an impostor scam is and describing the long history of impostor scams. He observes that impostor scams are a huge problem, and are facilitated by new technology. He argues that the government can and should do more to fight impostor scams, especially by giving more of the responsibility to intermediaries best able to limit them.
