Duped, Scammed and Suckered: the Development of the Sugrophobia Scale
The research reports the development and validation of a scale measuring sugrophobia, a trait motivated by a desire to avoid the aversive consequences associated with being duped. The final Sugrophobia Scale includes nine items representing three dimensions (apprehension regarding marketplace transactions, vigilance against duping, and anticipated remorse over possible duping).
