Q: What is the difference between easy mark and sitting duck ?
A: That's a tough one. First of all I'd say they do tend to be used in different situations. "An easy mark" commonly refers to a gullible or naive person who can be cheated or fooled easily, and is usually used by a 3rd party or the cheater not the gullible person themselves. "A sitting duck" is a phrase that is commonly used by the "duck" as well as other people, and implies vulnerability usually to either real or imaginary danger (like games). While "easy mark" is almost a criticism of the person being labeled (that they're ignorant or naive all the time), calling someone a "sitting duck" isn't inherently critical and usually refers to a temporary state (perhaps the person is injured so they are vulnerable currently, but not always).

Hope that helps.
