How Best To Fight Scammers?

What do you do when your National Police Force does nothing?

Look the Police, FBI, EuroPol, and others are seriously busy dealing with violent bad guys! You just need to accept it that they are not going to solve the problem of scammers.

So what do you do?

There are several things, starting with reporting them here – because we do take action against them.

There Is Another Choice Too!

When we go after scammers, we use a very old method. The TAX MAN!

In the 1930’s the most dangerous and violent gangster in the United States was Al Capone. How did they get him?

In 1931, gangster Al Capone is sentenced to 11 years in prison for tax evasion and fined $80,000, signaling the downfall of one of the most notorious criminals of the 1920s and 1930s. This was after the FBI couldn’t do a thing!

Tax Fraud! And we use this tactic around the world. The more information we can get, the more we can interest local tax men. To them a scammer bringin in thousands of dollars IS A BIG DEAL! So we can get the assets of scammers confiscated by the tax men.

However, what can you do?

Same Thing!

In the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe, and other countries, the tax collector is a real weapon against scammers if used properly. They love to hear from informants too, and even pay rewards!

It is actually simple you call their tax fraud hotlines, and give them the information you have about a scammer,

So if the scammer is in the U.S. you call the IRS, etc. If you sent money through Western Union to Ghana, report it to us and we will do the rest. Actually always report it to us anyway, since this helps warn off potential victims.

Who You Gonna Call?

  • United States – Internal Revenue Service
    [about their informant program]

    The IRS is looking for solid information, not an “educated guess” or unsupported speculation. We are also looking for a significant Federal tax issue – this is not a program for resolving personal problems or disputes about a business relationship.

    You can call the IRS hotline or submit this form:

    You can do this regardless of your personal tax status. Once you file a claim, here is information about that process:

  • Canada – Canada Revenue Agency [about their informant program]

    The Informant Leads Program coordinates and reviews information provided by the public to assist the CRA in identifying taxpayers who are violating tax laws. Lead information for this program pertains to domestic tax evasion allegations on the part of an individual or a business taxpayer. After reviewing elements of non-compliance with tax legislation, leads are provided to the corresponding compliance program for appropriate action.

    You can report these scammers in Canada online here:

  • Great Britain – HM Revenue & Customs [about their informant program]

    While they don’t say much they welcome informant leads! FROM ANY COUNTRY!

    They provide both a hotline and an online reporting system here:

  • Australia – Australian Taxation Office [about their informant program]

    If you have information about someone you think may be deliberately evading tax, you can report it to us confidentially online.

    They offer and online form to report tax fraud here:

  • Other Countries

    You will need to do a Google Search for your Country’s Tax Collection Informant Program, but almost every European Country has them.

    Don’t bother with Third-world Countries – we can handle that for you when you report the full information to us.


When the Tax Man steps in, they take the money for their government and country. But using their programs you can get a reward, and quite frankly the reward might be bigger than what you lost!

We have found this is far more effective than going through normal police channels. In Africa, you are far more likely to get a scammer arrested for tax or customs fraud than scamming.
