Training, Warning, and Media Richness Effects on Computer-Mediated Deception and Its Detection

Although deception research in the communication field has a long history, it is a relatively new topic of research in management information systems. Deception detection research has expanded to include lies transmitted via computer-mediated communication. Recent studies have only begun to look at the influence of media richness, training, and warning on deception detection accuracy. Studies on the effect of training on deception cue recognition with cross-media comparison are scarce. In addition, few studies have been conducted on the effects of training with warning on deception detection. This study examines the effects of media richness, training, warning, and the combination of training and warning on deception detection accuracy. To test the hypotheses, a laboratory experiment, in which deceivers were interviewed based upon deceptive information in their enhanced resumes, was conducted. Results of the study indicate that training in deceptive cue recognition improves deception detection success. / A Dissertation Submitted to the Department of Management Information Systems in
