We publish several articles to help you understand what happened to you and how to recover. You need to read and understand so that you can place the blame where it belongs and give yourself a chance to recover. You will find them in our RSN™ Guides.

Additionally, you are going to need HELP to recover. This comes in one of two forms: either a therapist, psychologist, or counselor; or you join a scam victims support group. If you do not seek help, the odds are high that you will be traumatized for life and take years to recover some of who you were before. Sadly, most victims DO NOT seek help. Less than 30% recovery from the trauma of their scam because they don’t try or let their anger get the better of them, and even those that do take a year or more to get over it.

The good news is that everyone who trimakesake it through to the other end!

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.
