How Scams Work – A SCARS Insight

Knowledge Is Not Enough To Stop A Scam!

A SCARS Editorial by Dr. Tim McGuinness

The Dawn Of AI In Scams

AI is beginning to take over the communications between victims and scammers. This means that scammers are now able to do more than just fake a video, they are able to use machine learning technology to assess your every word, facial expression, your voice inflection, to fine-tune their messaging to drive you in the direction they want. To use it to control you – the first time or over and over!

This means that they can tune their grooming and manipulation to maximize your hormonal and neurotransmitter dependency to an ever greater extent. This is roughly equal to the breakthroughs of Madison Avenue Advertising in the 1920s and 1930s.

You Are NOT Immune From This.

Only 1 in a million is immune! You are not the 1.

Nothing you have learned will prevent you from becoming a victim again. Especially not your attitude of denial that it can never happen again!

These new techniques will defeat you and everyone you know!

You may not think the face in this video looks very real, but just wait, we have shown you others that were visually perfect. In the next couple of years, these will become so perfect that no one can tell, except maybe another AI. They will also be used in most scams.

We have reached a singularity where the scammers now have capabilities that previously only the Russian & Chinese spin doctors had for disinformation. This is now available to scammers and it is very affordable for them. Remember each of their organizations is worth billions.

What Do You Do? Where Do You All Go Now?

You learn to change your behavior as we have been saying for nearly a decade.

Each of you who has been the victim of a relationship scam must stop being a victim and stop thinking like one. This will be very hard and most of you are already failing at that.

You have to change your thinking and your way of viewing and evaluating risk. You have to change how you respond to everyone online. You have to change your way of responding to everything.

You may think you have this totally under control, but that very same false confidence is what will doom you to being scammed again. Only by acknowledging the fact that you are predisposed to being scammed, can you gain the upper hand.

This sounds very harsh and most of you will reject this line of reasoning. That is because you are thinking and reacting emotionally (like a victim,) which is common for all victims after a scam. This is just one of the impacts of trauma on the human brain.

These truths do not matter where you live, or what your race, culture, or gender is. This is just how the human brain works – unless you are a psychopath.

After your relationship scam, you were traumatized and that very same trauma is helping to keep you traumatized. As long as you remain broken you are virtually defenseless.

Is This Now A Situation Where You Are All Doomed?

No, some of you will understand our message and do what is needed to make yourself more resistant to the kind of manipulation that is coming. Some of you will not and will be scammed over and over.

SCARS has helped more scam victims than anyone in the world – literally millions. We have seen the behavioral models and mindsets of repeat victims and what they all have in common. We have also seen the mindsets of those that are never repeat-victims.

How Do You Really Change?

  1. Accept the truth of the situation – everyone can be manipulated and everyone will be.
  2. Accept that YOU can be scammed again unless you change.
  3. Fix your trauma – accept that you were traumatized and get the trauma counseling help to recover from it.
  4. Do your best to evaluate every decision – yes, second-guess yourself, to see if it is a logical analytical decision or an emotional one.
  5. Change your view of risks. No risk is really acceptable after you have been made a victim. Forget being brave, think survival!
  6. Develop better situational awareness of where risks come from and reside. And avoid them!
  7. Depend more on others to help you see reality and when you may be stepping over a line of safety.
  8. Listen to others when they express concerns about your directions and safety. Put pride and stubbornness aside! This is not about independence, it is about survival.
  9. Understand that you were addicted in the scam previously and remain susceptible to going there again. This means that abstinence is the only thing that works. Forget online dating and friendships – stay in the real world.
  10. Accept that you WILL NOT see the next scam coming, just as you did NOT see the last one. Only by changing your behaviors do you have a chance.

These 10 changes are what will give you a fighting chance of success in the future. All of them are very real solutions to the world you live in now. But if you reject this, or worse, think you are already safe, you are doomed – it will happen again.

Overconfidence is the destroyer of your safety. It was the first time, and it will be the next.

Does This Mean We Want You To Be Insecure All Your Life? Yes And No!

You need to be insecure enough to recognize that there be dragons out there and that you will not see all of them coming. You need to be insecure enough to avoid every risk that you can identify and many that you cannot.

Only by being insecure can you be secure enough in your safeguards to feel and actually be safe. Consider the Gazelle, a happy little animal but they have hard-wired risk avoidance into their brains, yet they are eaten by lions every day. What we are talking about is a similar evolutionary step forward to reduce your risk of being prey again and again.

Many of you will continue your overconfidence and fail. Repeat victims are not very vocal, so you almost never hear from them. They typically hide and collapse in their increased trauma. Some of you are repeat victims.

Regardless of what we say, most of you will not listen, but some will, and it is to those that we say this. Not only can you make it through the recovery, but you can learn to achieve safety afterward. But even you have to be constantly reminded that things are changing for the worse, and it is happening fast!

Two years ago Pig Butchering scams appeared on the world stage and today they are almost half of the online financial fraud worldwide. Now AI is beginning to make its appearance.

Most of you are not ready. Some will never be ready. But we will continue to tell you the truth as much as we can.

We hope you can understand this message and can use it to stay safe online and in the real world!

We sincerely wish you all the best!

PLEASE NOTE: Psychology Clarification

The following specific modalities within the practice of psychology are restricted to psychologists appropriately trained in the use of such modalities:

  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis of mental, emotional, or brain disorders and related behaviors.
  • Psychoanalysis: Psychoanalysis is a type of therapy that focuses on helping individuals to understand and resolve unconscious conflicts.
  • Hypnosis: Hypnosis is a state of trance in which individuals are more susceptible to suggestion. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including anxiety, depression, and pain.
  • Biofeedback: Biofeedback is a type of therapy that teaches individuals to control their bodily functions, such as heart rate and blood pressure. It can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including stress, anxiety, and pain.
  • Behavioral analysis: Behavioral analysis is a type of therapy that focuses on changing individuals’ behaviors. It is often used to treat conditions such as autism and ADHD.
    Neuropsychology: Neuropsychology is a type of psychology that focuses on the relationship between the brain and behavior. It is often used to assess and treat cognitive impairments caused by brain injuries or diseases.

SCARS and the members of the SCARS Team do not engage in any of the above modalities in relationship to scam victims. SCARS is not a mental healthcare provider and recognizes the importance of professionalism and separation between its work and that of the licensed practice of psychology.

SCARS is an educational provider of generalized self-help information that individuals can use for their own benefit to achieve their own goals related to emotional trauma. SCARS recommends that all scam victims see professional counselors or therapists to help them determine the suitability of any specific information or practices that may help them.

SCARS cannot diagnose or treat any individuals, nor can it state the effectiveness of any educational information that it may provide, regardless of its experience in interacting with traumatized scam victims over time. All information that SCARS provides is purely for general educational purposes to help scam victims become aware of and better understand the topics and to be able to dialog with their counselors or therapists.

It is important that all readers understand these distinctions and that they apply the information that SCARS may publish at their own risk, and should do so only after consulting a licensed psychologist or mental healthcare provider.
