We Wanted To Share

Our Society believes strongly in transparency in what we do and who we are. Almost EVERY anti-scam group is either a fake, a 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., a scammer, or an amateur lying to you about what they know (except for SCARS Members who strictly follow the SCARS Code of Conduct in what they do). We hope this helps you feel a little more secure after your experience.

Just know that we will do everything we can to help maintain the trust in what we do.
