Some victims give away huge sums of money, from thousands to over a million. We know that scams are both an emotional dependency that results in grief after it ends, as well as an addiction that results in withdrawal after it is over. There have been massive amounts written about the impact on people’s lives when they experience these things.

RSN™ Guide: United States Military & Social Media

So much of the information spread around about scammers and fake military is nothing but urban legend. False information, misinterpretation, or rumors spread like lice in a preschool. This article will help to clear up many of these preconceptions that are nothing but urban legends and replace them with fact.

Yes, the United States has military personnel in EVERY country on Earth (except a handful). Most of these are assigned to United States Embassies, however there are active military missions in over 100 countries – mostly fighting terrorists around the globe. Not since World War 2 has there been deployment of United States and NATO forces in more counties.

RSN™ Guide: How To Spot Fake United States Military ID Cards

RSN™ Guide: How To Spot Fake United States Military ID Cards

Right Up Front – If Someone Sends You A Photo Of Their ID Card They ARE A Scammer!

That is because it is illegal for United States Military personnel to copy their ID cards. It is that simple!

However, so many people want to understand how to make sure they are fakes that we have created the following.

United States Military ID Cards Are Called “CAC” – Common Access Cards.  The CAC, a “smart” card about the size of a credit card, is the standard identification for active duty uniformed Service personnel, Selected Reserve, U.S. Department of Defence [DoD] civilian employees, and eligible contractor personnel.  It is also the principal card used to enable physical access to buildings and controlled spaces, and it provides access to DoD computer network and systems.

A Guide for Friends and Family of Romance Scam Survivors

This Guide is intended for Family and Friends of someone that was involved in a Romance Scam

This is presented in the hope that it will help scam victims to explain what happened to them. We hope that by reading this you can understand that the victim was not at fault but was professionally manipulated beyond their will and control.

A Romance Scam Is An Unusual Crime. It Starts With Just Saying Hello.

The internet was conceived as a place for all of us to come together, connect with new people, people from all over the world. We could learn about each other’s cultures, lives, and histories, and make the world a smaller happier place. Or so went the theory.

RomanceScamsNow.com The Official News Magazine About Scams & Scammers™ From [SCARS] The Society Of Citizens Against Romance Scams

This Week On RSN™

We have just completed our re-registration and are now incorporated as a fully tax-exempt nonprofit corporation in the state of Delaware. We had previously been registered under a different status that was less favorable for full charitable status. Now that this is complete we will be moving to consolidate and work more closely with the U.S. Administration to more dramatically address the needs of victims and changes in law. Dr. McGuinness and our SCARS Executives will be more public in our advocacy activities as well to counter fake and amateur advocates.

We just returned from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with a huge number of major milestones completed. See our Main Page on Facebook » for the details.

Our focus is on placing the spotlight on the political battles in the U.S. over the Communications Decency Act and on the new proposed European Copyright Directive. CDA modification proposals from so-called Advocates in Facebook’s pockets really only benefit Facebook, not victims. The new E.U. directive will be a complete disaster for us all.

We are providing everyone with our new Cybersecurity Awareness Training »

We are also adding more of our awareness content and social media posters to our website »
