SCARS™ Analysis: Breakdown Of Scammers 2018
SCARS Analytics performed an analysis of over 23,000 scam reports compiled from January 2018 through July 2018.
The purpose of the analysis was to better understand how scammers are organizing and if there is a shift taking place from one type of organization to another. As we have seen during 2018 there are and have been a significant number of scamming groups shut down with nearly 6,000 arrests just this year. However, the majority of these have been larger scamming organizations – the largest was 1,310 scammers based in China, while smaller and individual scammers go largely ignored.
To better understand the enemy we all face it is necessary to understand their organizational structure to focus resources on those that pose the greatest threats and also where a single disruption can have the greatest impact on ending scams.
The following represents the results of this analysis:
NOTE: The analysis included scammers from all regions, but was dominated by African-based scamming.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
