How Do You Stop Scams?

How Do You Stop Scams?

THE SCARS THREE STEPS TO STOPPING SCAMS:

1. Don’t talk to strangers online – in other words: recognize the risk

Something as simple as just accepting that there is a constant and real danger online will help you be aware and be more careful.

2. Report every online crime that involves money – everyone!

This is so governments prioritize.

This also empowers victims.

Reporting matters so much because governments have no idea how big the problem really is. But if victims never report, then the government never gives the resources needed to control and stop it. See below for how to uniformly report scammers.

3. Learn about how scams work on your brain and emotions!

These are skills that serve you throughout your life – then pass them on to your family and friends.

By making the effort to really understand how scams work, avoiding the fake information and urban legends spread by amateurs, you will be empowered to recognize manipulation when it is tried on you.

In short: knowing that there really is a constant danger, telling others about it, and learning how to recognize it are essential to preventing it.

Law enforcement cannot stop this, any more than they can stop drug trafficking. Only the consumers of scams – meaning the victims – can stop it by not being ignorant, silent, and vulnerable any more.

Can You Stop It?

Could you do these three things? Of course, you can!

You can’t stop it alone, and you can’t stop by wasting time on useless amateur tactics. But if you help SCARS by sharing information constantly, by volunteering, and by donating, then you can help slow it!

Just remember: Online Crime Is Real Crime – use this hashtag everywhere! #OnlineCrimeIsRealCrime

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. U.S. State Police (if you live in the U.S.) – they will take the matter more seriously and provide you with more help than local police
  3. Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
  4. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network on « www.Anyscam.com »

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
