Point your Internet browser to the Criss Library website at and look for the Research Tools column on the left side of the homepage.  Click into the All Databases A-Z directory:


Once in All Databases A-Z, scroll down and click the link to the Academic Search Complete database:

I typed this search in Academic Search Complete:

The asterisks after fraud* or scam* serve as wildcards to pick up variations such as fraud, fraudulent, scam, scams, scammed, etc.  I also clicked on the Full Text and Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) filters to restrict results to research-based studies with the articles immediately available online:

When I entered the search, it retrieved 36 articles.  I tried again with the Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) filter clicked off, and the results jumped to 196 articles.  You may want to experiment further, but the Academic Search Complete database should turn up all the articles you need.

If you search from an off-campus computer, you will be prompted to login to your Criss Library account to confirm you are a UNO student eligible for off-campus access.  If you have not created a library account, please see the instructions in the attached PDF file.
