Victims Scamming Victims Warning

We recently had to ban someone from our social media pages and groups who is indeed a real victim, but she was trying to obtain money from . When she was caught doing this, she denied it but the evidence is very clear. She thought she would try to scam into giving her money to make up for what she lost to her scammer.

In effect, this was a victim who was in dire financial difficulty trying to scam other victims by making up stories, just like scammers do.

This is the first time we have seen this tactic, though it does not surprise us. There must be many victims that try to recover their money from other victims. While this is unforgiveable, it is understandable. Many victims are in terrible financial straights after their scam.

The point of this warning is that you can trust no one online! Not even other victims 100%.

Always be on guard for unethical or dishonest behavior regardless of who it might be.

Even good victims can turn to the same tactics as their scammers use if they have no other place to turn.

It is tragic that we have to ban people in need, but we have to look out for the greater number of honest victims and their safety.


  1. Never identify yourself as a victim on social media pages. You never know who is watching. If you need help contact us directly and we will help – you can message us by email or through our social media, we are always here. Keep in mind that commenting on this website is safe since the public cannot contact you except by leaving another comment.
  2. Never accept a request for direct messages or contact with a person leaving comments. Again you do not know who that is.
  3. If anyone asks you for something block them. Even a “victim” who sends you a friend request should be blocked, and you should notify us so we can take action or investigate.
  4. Be careful what you believe. You need to understand that you are pre-disposed to believe made up stories. You were scammed once, and most victims are scammed multiple times.
  5. No place is 100% safe. We block scamming countries and police our social media pages, groups, and websites for scammers, but you never know. Be careful what you say about yourself in public, and lock down your personal social media profile NOW!

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:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.

    I received a post from a ” scam heater” from Europe. I investigated her, it turned out she was a he, and a well-known scammer. How can one report somebody without evidence? I see the same faces over and over again, with differnt names ore different pics. I am not communicating with anybody. I have no evidence to report them. They leave little traces behind.

      When a report is filed on our websites it is forwarded to government agencies as a criminal report. So it should not be done unless there is proof. However, when you find suspected fakes on social media we also have another approach. You can join our Facebook Anti-Scam Army and help report them, and ultimately Facebook is the one that decides.
