In this paper we develop an operational, quantitative method for the propagation of public perception. The model is presented as an extension of the culture-sanctioned social metric framework. We use the technique to model an extended version of the Spanish Steps flower selling scam, where a seller manipulates the belief of the clients and the public perception to pressure the clients to buy overpriced flowers. © 2013 Springer-Verlag.
