Romance ScamsScams A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime -  is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. Now™ Goes Forward With Law Suits Against Internet Trolls

SCARS EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN JANUARY 2017 BEFORE RSN / ROMANCE SCAMS NOW WAS ACQUIRED BY SCARS – WHICH IS WHY YOU DO NOT SEE THE APPROPRIATE REFERENCES. IN THE TWO YEARS SINCE THIS PERIOD OF CONFLICT SCARS HAS CONTINUOUSLY HAD TO DEFEND ITSELF FROM HATERS AND TROLLS, NOT TO MENTION SOCIAL MEDIA GIANT FACEBOOK. AS LONG AS THERE ARE VICTIMS WHO ALLOW HATE TO RULE THEIR LIVES THESE CONFLICTS WILL CONTINUE.

RSN Defamed

A year ago we tried a crowdfunding campaign to increase our staffing. It was not successful, but someone went absolutely nuts over it and began attacking us constantly. It really comes down to them being a one-man group with no real credentials and it’s really professional (or the lack thereof) jealousy.

Ethics Play A Big Role In What We Do, But Not Everyone Cares – They Blow Through The Anti-ScamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime -  is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. World As Though They Own It And All The Victims Are Just Their Property

We have no secrets, and who and what we are and who is in and behind our organization is public record. Most anti-scam groups hide their identities, have no address or other identifying information, and are nothing more than a person or two in their bedroom or kitchen. Some pretend to be large organizations and publish addresses and phone numbers but are still shams hiding in plain sight. Most anti-scam groups use fake names to hide their identities – they claim that they do this because they are afraid of scammers – but scammers are no real threat. Some aliases are understandable when hunting for scammers, but not in the operation of a group communicating with victims. We believe in transparency, and this both scares and angers other groups who are not very ethical or honest.

And Of Course, There Is The Financial Gain Aspect – Some Secretly Ask Victims For Money

We have never asked a single victim for a cent except in a couple of public fundraising activities for the benefit of victims – we are funded by grants from our parent company and always have been

They also go after SCARS because of our affiliation, because they are effective and recognized by governments around the world. It comes down to a form of Munchausen for some, they don’t want to see real change because their ego or personal power is locked up in a continuous stream of victims. They are only important because victims see them as important, not because of anything they actually do. Since we have been effective, along with those we work with, they feel threatened and therefore attack us – attack our employees individually and partners, and engage in character assassination unchecked. Unfortunately, Facebook does nothing about such behaviorBehavior   Behavior / Behavioral Actions Otherwise known as habits, behavior or behavioral actions are strategies to help prevent online exploitation that target behavior, such as social engineering of victims. Changing your behavior is the ONLY effective means to reduce or prevent scams..

But In The End, That Is What Courts Are For And Regardless Of Where In The World They Are, U.S. Courts Hold Sway

Until the case is filed, we will not be able to disclose the other parties for risk of defaming them. Once it is FILED we will share who they are and the full details of their actions. We have already filed criminalCriminal A criminal is any person who through a decision or act engages in a crime. This can be complicated, as many people break laws unknowingly, however, in our context, it is a person who makes a decision to engage in unlawful acts or to place themselves with others who do this. A criminal always has the ability to decide not to break the law, or if they initially engage in crime to stop doing it, but instead continues. complaints against one who is residing in the U.K. & Russia who is an especially pathetic Internet Troll who envisions himself a major internet publisher. The charges were filed for criminal 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. here in the State of Florida and with the U.S. FBIFBI FBI - Federal Bureau of Investigation The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States and its principal federal law enforcement agency. Operating under the jurisdiction of the United States Department of Justice, the FBI is also a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community and reports to both the Attorney General and the Director of National Intelligence. A leading U.S. counter-terrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal investigative organization, the FBI has jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crimes, including financial fraud., and we will be filing other charges as well.

It Is Sad That This Has To Go In This Direction, But There Are Pathetic People Who RageRage Anger, also known as wrath or rage, is an intense emotional state involving a strong uncomfortable and non-cooperative response to a perceived provocation, trigger, hurt or threat. About one-third of scam victims become trapped in anger for extended periods of time following a scam. A person experiencing anger will often experience physical effects, such as increased heart rate, elevated blood pressure, and increased levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline. Some view anger as an emotion that triggers a part of the fight or flight response. Anger becomes the predominant feeling behaviorally, cognitively, and physiologically. Anger can have many physical and mental consequences. While most of those who experience anger explain its arousal as a result of "what has happened to them", psychologists point out that an angry person can very well be mistaken because anger causes a loss in self-monitoring capacity and objective observability.

We have taken the ethical high ground since our team’s beginning in 1991, and since the Society of Citizens Against Relationship ScamsSCARS SCARS - Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams Inc.

However, the battles with amateurs & pretenders who claim to be instant experts continue. We will continue to live up to our ethics and standards of transparency regardless of what the haters try to say. We will continue to defend ourselves and by doing so, defend victims everywhere from those that would have you stay trapped in angerAnger Anger, also known as wrath or rage, is an intense emotional state involving a strong uncomfortable and non-cooperative response to a perceived provocation, trigger, hurt or threat.

How does the old saying go? “Misery Loves Company!” It is so true in the world of scam victims and fake amateur anti-scam groups!

In this case, the matter was tried and RSN prevailed and the case was sealed to allow for other actions. Since criminal charges were involved we cannot disclose anything more about these cases.

Angel Garcia is no longer with SCARS. We appreciate his service in our cause.
