You just need to accept it that they are not going to solve the problem of scammers.
So what do you do?
There are several things, starting with reporting them here – because we do take action against them.
There Is Another Choice Too!
When we go after scammers, we use a very old method. The TAX MAN!
In the 1930’s the most dangerous and violent gangster in the United States was Al Capone. How did they get him?
In 1931, gangster Al Capone is sentenced to 11 years in prison for tax evasion and fined $80,000, signaling the downfall of one of the most notorious criminals of the 1920s and 1930s. This was after the FBI couldn’t do a thing!
Tax FraudFraud In law, fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain (money or other assets), or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, for example by obtaining a passport, travel document, or driver's license, or mortgage fraud, where the perpetrator may attempt to qualify for a mortgage by way of false statements. A fraud can also be a hoax, which is a distinct concept that involves deliberate deception without the intention of gain or of materially damaging or depriving a victim.! And we use this tactic around the world. The more information we can get, the more we can interest local tax men. To them a scammerScammer A Scammer or Fraudster is someone that engages in deception to obtain money or achieve another objective. They are criminals that attempt to deceive a victim into sending more or performing some other activity that benefits the scammer. bringin in thousands of dollars IS A BIG DEAL! So we can get the assets of scammers confiscated by the tax men.
However, what can you do?
In the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe, and other countries, the tax collector is a real weapon against scammers if used properly. They love to hear from informants too, and even pay rewards!
It is actually simple you call their tax fraud hotlines, and give them the information you have about a scammer,
So if the scammer is in the U.S. you call the IRSIRS The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the revenue & tax service of the United States federal government responsible for collecting taxes and administering the Internal Revenue Code (the main body of federal statutory tax law.)

The duties of the IRS include providing tax assistance to taxpayers; pursuing and resolving instances of erroneous or fraudulent tax filings; and overseeing various benefits programs. Visit www.IRS.gov to learn more., etc. If you sent money through Western Union to Ghana, report it to us and we will do the rest. Actually always report it to us anyway, since this helps warn off potential victims.
Who You Gonna Call?
- United States – Internal Revenue Service [about their informant program]
The IRS is looking for solid information, not an “educated guess” or unsupported speculation. We are also looking for a significant Federal tax issue – this is not a program for resolving personal problems or disputes about a business relationship.
You can call the IRS hotline or submit this form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f211.pdf
You can do this regardless of your personal tax status. Once you file a claim, here is information about that process: https://www.irs.gov/uac/What-Happens-to-a-Claim-for-an-Informant-Award-(Whistleblower)
- Canada – Canada Revenue Agency [about their informant program]
The Informant Leads Program coordinates and reviews information provided by the public to assist the CRA in identifying taxpayers who are violating tax laws. Lead information for this program pertains to domestic tax evasion allegations on the part of an individual or a business taxpayer. After reviewing elements of non-compliance with tax legislation, leads are provided to the corresponding compliance program for appropriate action.
You can report these scammers in Canada online here: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/leads/
- Great Britain – HM Revenue & Customs [about their informant program]
While they don’t say much they welcome informant leads! FROM ANY COUNTRY!
They provide both a hotline and an online reporting system here: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs/contact/reporting-tax-evasion
- Australia – Australian Taxation Office [about their informant program]
If you have information about someone you think may be deliberately evading tax, you can report it to us confidentially online.

- Other Countries
You will need to do a Google Search for your Country’s Tax Collection Informant Program, but almost every European Country has them.
Don’t bother with Third-world Countries – we can handle that for you when you report the full information to us.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WAY FOR YOU TO GET YOUR MONEY BACK!
When the Tax Man steps in, they take the money for their government and country. But using their programs you can get a reward, and quite frankly the reward might be bigger than what you lost!
We have found this is far more effective than going through normal police channels. In Africa, you are far more likely to get a scammer arrested for tax or customs fraud than scamming.
REMEMBER IT IS UP TO YOU TO DO SOMETHING!
IF YOU FAIL TO REPORT SCAMMERS YOU ARE LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES!
