Anti-Scam FAQ: How do I find the scammer’s real name that scammed me?


Unfortunately, it can be difficult to determine the real name of a scammer. Scammers often use fake names and stolen identities, and they may use different names for different scams. Additionally, many scammers operate from other countries, which can make it even more difficult to track them down.

If you have been scammed, the best thing you can do is to contact your bank or credit card company and report the scam. They may be able to help you recover some or all of the money you lost, and they can also provide advice on what to do next.

In some cases, you may be able to use information from the scam, such as the email address or phone number used by the scammer, to try and track them down. For example, you could try searching for the email address online, or you could use a reverse phone number lookup service to try and find the owner of the phone number.

However, these methods may not always work, and they may not provide accurate or complete information. It is important to remember that it can be very difficult to identify and locate a scammer, and it may not be possible to recover the money you lost (though your financial institution and the police are the only ones that can do that). It is always best to be cautious and avoid giving out personal or financial information to anyone you do not know and trust that claims they can get your money back!
