It's not older Americans who fall for scams, but those who are younger, less educated, and underpaid.

The study surveyed adults in the U.S., Great Britain, and Australia.

Americans are most susceptible to scams involving a free prize or antivirus software...especially those living in the Northeast and Southwest.
