One of the best resources to learn more about social engineering and
some of the protections that you can take against it is Sarah
Granger's "Social Engineering Fundamentals" articles at

http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1527

and

http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1533


If you prefer your social engineering information in journal article
format, check out Jonathan J. Rusch's "The 'Social Engineering' of
Internet Fraud" article on the Internet Society's website at

http://www.isoc.org/isoc/conferences/inet/99/proceedings/3g/3g_2.htm

Rusch is with the United States Department of Justice, and his
fifteen-ish page article provides a scholarly look at the psychology
of social engineering and how social engineering has spread to the
Internet.

Another decent resource is KPaul's "Give Me Your Password: A Social
Engineering Intro" at
