Launch app against doorstep scams
Launch app against doorstep scams Laura van der Lubbe, Charlotte Gerritsen, Marco Otte and former VU colleague Tibor Bosse have, together with KBO-PCOB, developed an app with which the elderly can increase their resilience against doorstep scams. With this multifunctional training, older people can increase their resilience and offer better resistance to so-called doorstep scams. Based on realistic scenarios and state-of-the-art speech analysis, older people can experience a doorstep scam and learn to defend themselves against this in the future. By developing this training in the form of a (mobile) app, it is easily accessible for elderly people who often have tablets. The launch has received much media attention.
