Our Official Response

Unlike incompetent scam haters this or captain that or police team group something else, RSN’s Team has been working against scammers for 27 years – since 1991 – starting on the old AOL. Our first webpage was published on TigerDirect.com in 1995 (yes our founder was also a co-founder of TigerDirect in 1985), then was spun out as a separate website in 1998 – with the RSN brand appearing in the late 2000’s.

We don’t make bogus claims to have saved victims Bazillions of Dollars, we just try to help you minimize the damage that the scam did to you. Unfortunately, knowledge doesn’t save most people because they will not listen until it is too late! BUT we have saved lives and helped real people recover after their scam.

We also don’t claim to get victims’ money back or to get scammers arrested (no one can guarantee that). Unlike one group, we never claim to go on hunting trips to Ghana & Nigeria. Most of the work we do remains off the radar working with governments – including the U.S. Government.

We are a real organization, with offices and employees – not one other anti-scam group is! RSN is a division of the Society of Citizens Against Romance Scams [SCARS] www.AgainstScams.org We are a non-profit non-governmental organization (NGO) domiciled in the United States of America. SCARS was founded in 2015 and acquired RSN from its original founder in early 2017 to better support and educate victims, and hopefully those who had not yet become victims.

We (SCARS that is) built the world’s only real clearinghouse and network model for scammer data that distributes scammer reports around the world to more than 1,000 government agencies, law enforcement, businesses, websites, and social media. You can report on hundreds of Facebook pages and dozens of websites (including www.Anyscam.com and www.RomanceScamsNow.com – here)

We are a registered crime victims’ assistance & support organization – registered with the United States Department of Justice – through their National Center for Victims of Crime. We are a cybercrime partner with the United States Department of Homeland Security, Europol, Council of Europe, Russian FSB, and the PRC Ministry of Public Security. We are making changes that in time will bring a close on this chapter of global online fraud. Our team also holds dozens of certifications.

Be careful who you believe online – after all that is how you were scammed in the first place. Trust no one, not even us, until you know for sure!

Fortunately, all SCARS personnel and members adhere to and comply with the SCARS Code of Conduct, and the NOVA standard for victims’ assistance. Always look for the SCARS logo as the first sign of trustworthiness. If a group is not a SCARS Member, ask them why – either they cannot comply with our ethical standards or they have been removed for violations of those standards. Are those the kinds of groups you want to put your faith into?

Now you know who WE are! Real organization, real people, real mission! If you want to join us, you too can become a SCARS Member for free – visit our website for more information (www.AgainstScams.org)

This is what it means to be transparent! Transparency is a requirement of SCARS Members!

Remember to stay safe and trust no one (until you can verify)!
