Digital deceptions exist on the Internet in various forms and for different purposes. The purpose of this study is to understand the current state of the digital deception research in IS discipline. Based on our review and analysis of the selected digital deception articles published in IS journals and conference proceedings, we discussed various perspectives of digital deceptions, such as the media, types of deception, deceivers, motivations, and victims. The results of our study indicate that deception phenomena are severely under-researched in IS discipline. The study provides suggestions for future research.
