Dear Jeffrey:

How about hoaxers in general? That might make the numbers large
enough to interest the Psychology community or others in allied
studies.

UFOs are a prime target of course, but so are paranormal
studies, exobiology, xenobiology ( bigfoot, loch ness .. ) and
other "fringe" areas. The lure might be the large numbers of
people who want to believe in something, but there may be some
other psychology afoot here entirely.

I would expect hoaxers in all fringe sciences to have very
similar modes and motives, but I could be wrong there too.


Best wishes
