A Free 8 Step Program For Recovery From Online Fraud

The Romance Scams Now™ Road Map To Recovery For Scam Victims.

Note: This is not a medically approved program, but an emotional support program intended for educational purposes only. Please read the disclaimer at the end.

This program was designed by the staff of Romance Scams Now based upon our 25 years of experience as a self-help program to assist in the recovery process for those that do not have other means or resources available to them, or for those that are not ready to take the first step to seeking counseling or therapy.

After the trauma of being scammed, you need to take steps to recover and move on. This may be an alternative in the short-term, but we still encourage you to seek out professional help.

Where Did This Come From:

We have patterned our program after the very successful Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program.

Alcoholics Anonymous members often talk about "working the steps." During this process, members of the AA group move through each of the steps to achieve sobriety and recovery.

In AA, participants are encouraged to pair up with a sponsor to work through the steps. The sponsor is a member who is further along in the program and acts as a guide through the steps for newer members. Sponsors provide individual care and support throughout recovery, even making themselves available outside meetings via phone. In the face of potential relapse, a person can call his or her sponsor.

In the RSN Steps Program, we do not have Sponsors, however, participants are support through our online social media support groups on Facebook by the peer members of these groups. Group members may, at their option (though it is not encouraged) connect personally with each other to offer greater support. Though we do recommend that scam victims also seek health professional counseling to better assess their needs and develop a professional mental and physical health program.

Endorsements

This is certainly a really STRONG program. I am sure that it will help to start a recovery for a person who is lost in the throws of understanding the scam he/she is involved in.

I have written a book called ‘Love on the Line’ and through that experience of writing out my story, learning to understand the relationships between the world we live in and the scamming phenomena and believing in that we now can re-create our own ‘happy ending’ with no blame or self-beating involved, we can start the long recovery process. I think that it is a lot about forgiving yourself also.

Thank you for the program. I will share it around, Warmly

    I'm being skyped daily by a sexy white girl claiming to be in Ghana. She keeps asking for foodstuffs through Ghanamart.com , I email with her, skype with her, have seen a woman claiming to be her Mother. Her microphone does not work and her cam freezes often, however when she wants me to see her in her skimpy lingerie I can. HOW CAN I FIND OUT IF SHES A SCAM???
    It's all just to much to believe for me... She also sent me a copy of her expired US Passport claiming she needs to renew it to come back to the US....???? Please contact me with info for my own understanding. I also have 3 phone numbers for her. I HAVE NOT YET SENT MONEY or anything to her.... It sounds way to good to be true. But I can see her on skype and it looks like she is in a very nice home or apartment probably here in the US.. LOL HELP me to understand this and whether it's BS or could it be REAL???? Her name is Jessy Samadu... That's on her US Passport expired in 2015.

      You are being scammers. Period.

        Is there a way to find out who she really is from the Passport photo she sent me? It appears as though she is skyping with me from the US as the inside of her house is very modern and furnished extravagantly by Ghana standards. How can she skype with me live and take showers and dance if shes fake? From my knowledge there are NO WHITE GIRLS in Ghana?? How are they doing this? Can I trace her somehow?

    Is there anyway to start alerting the people whose photos have been stolen....they are victims, too. In some cases, it seems like the pictures were collected for a period of the persons lifetime...say from teenage years on up to the forties. How horrible!

    My first scammer on the dating site Match...sent me pics of two seperate men....claiming to be the same guy. Unbelievable...and got really angry when I wrote---you look so different in these pictures...your eye and hair color and height appearl totally different. They are careless as well...scrutinize all pics even backgrounds.

      THE REAL PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO BE CONTACTED BY OTHER VICTIMS. THEY ARE WELL AWARE THEIR PHOTOS WERE USED. WE AND OTHER GROUPS HAVE ALREADY ALERTED THEM.

So , Melina Axel Adrain goes to Bahrain to claim the her father's inherantance where now I am into $60,000.00 thousand dollars into this scam and now she said to get all of the necessary papers to release these funds I need to send a additional $69,000.00 to release these funds from Bahrain. I have copies of all documentation and her picture passport of Her Germain passport. What is my legal recorse here?

      Is there a class action lawsuit going on Facebook about the Scammers at this moment ?? If so how do I find it to sign my name on it ? I lost my life savings to a Scammer off of Facebook and I have tried to get him throwed off more than once.. He still has 7 are 8 profiles on Facebook under the name he used during our suppose to be relationship.

        NOT YET - THERE ARE SEVERAL LAW FIRMS CONSIDERING ACTIONS OF THIS TYPE - BUT GOING AGAINST FACEBOOK IS ALMOST THE SCARIEST THING ON THE PLANET - EVEN NORTH KOREA WOULD BE EASIER. NOT MANY LAWFIRMS ARE WILLING TO INVEST $50,0000,000 INTO SUCH A LAW SUIT!

    My experience of online dating scams led to my inspiration to write a book to give me (the victim) a happy ending if only in a fictional context! It is dedicated to women everywhere and the need for us to be there for each other and it is getting very good reviews as detailed below.

    Well I finished Exactly 23 days and I Absofuckinglutelylovedit! Not my usual sort of read but it had me gripped. The ending OMG! Seriously, I read it every spare minute I had. I couldn't put it down. Bit bloody clever you are! When's the next one out Jayne because I really loved it. Seriously. Brilliant. It put a smile on my face and a lump in my throat, on several occasions. Well done you. Get back to that desk of yours and pen a new one. NOW. (male 40’s Oct 2016)

    Exactly 23 days is available from https://completelynovel.com/books/exactly-23-days, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goggle Books.

    I was wondering if this person is for real details are: Ryan Rangers/ E7 Sergeant First Class at Army
    Has never requested anything but did say that he could not go leave from deployment unless someone
    like a wife, fiancée , signed for him. I then read on a site about some military protocol. Me thinks
    it is just a little lie, what do you think? Why are we so naïve.

    • Julie Loranger October 11, 2016 at 11:33 am - Reply

      Don't need the comment, I researched myself. Romance scammer. WE need to educate ourselves about who we are friends with on FB, as well as any other dating sites. Above all stay vigilant.
      God Bless Julie. L.

    You have to forgive the scammer?

    Thats exactly what they afterward requested from me too. Yet later on trying to even rip more munah.

    No! I tell you what to do here. You set an example in revenge that beats all the actions what they served to the victims before and share it right to their family clan audience on social media. The more doing it, the faster it will stop.

      Anger makes you stupid. You were already dumb enough to be scammed in the first place, making one bad decision after another is not a great way to go. And how would you get revenge on someone that lives half a world away? You can deal with your situation or not, that is a choice.

      It takes no courage to rant, hiding behind Google is easy. It takes courage to face yourself and move on!

      • Elina Juusola-Halonen May 24, 2016 at 4:27 am - Reply

        I agree with this. How can you even try to have revenge on someone that is not there. It is a fake profile you would be taking revenge on. A better way would be to set the scammer aside, and deal with your own problem, whatever it is that has made you vulnerable in the first place? This does not have to be something where you bash yourself. It can be something that starts the healing process for you. Maybe start a daily journal and record your feelings and your dreams. You will be surprised to find that you might have the answer there already..
