SCARS™ Commentary: Helping Others

How Can You Really Help Others?

When people are new to all of this they always say they want to stop it and help others.

However, before you can help others you have to help yourself. You have to stabilize and go down your own path of recovery first.

The best way to help is to become a volunteer. Start by helping those in your own group.

Bring things to the table that you think may help:

  • Share your own experiences and how you coped with it
  • Realize that there is a lot to learn
  • Participate in the group and comment for the benefit of everyone
  • After you pass the point of stability months after the scam ended – let us know and we will help you have a more public voice – we will even create an anti-scam page for you that complies with SCARS Code of Conduct – this lets you help more by your example
  • Help us by being a volunteer or a mentor to other victims in our support groups
  • Help us edit our SCARS pages
  • Write a book – we have many successful authors in our sphere who can help
  • Help rescue victims in denial
  • Be a local advocate in your town by speaking with the local crime victims advocates about helping scam victims – this includes going back to the police as a civic-minded citizen and explaining it all to their management – sharing our RomanceScamsNow.com website as their resource
  • Help support SCARS advocacy initiatives and campaigns

In short, helping others, just like helping yourself comes in many different forms. Finding what works for you is the key.

There Is So Much That Needs To Be Done That Any Help Matters!

Let us know if you want to be a survivor that can help others!

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 (www.IC3.gov »)
  3. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – 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.
