About Us

We are a group of scholars, scientists, and working professions interested in sharing information about why people lie to, and cheat on, those they love. More importantly, all of the articles provided on our site are written by someone who has a PhD in one of the social sciences, except for the section on politicians and infidelity and our featured blog.

Professionally, our jobs provide us with the opportunity to investigate deception in everyday life—we work as scholars or have served as consultants to the security industry. Over the years we have had a unique opportunity to think about why people are so willing to betray those they love.

We created this website to share with you what we have discovered—the "Truth about Deception"

We hope you find our website useful and informative. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments or provide us some feedback.
