Scam Victim Recovery – A SCARS Special Report

All Scam/Financial Fraud Victims Need Support

Unfortunately, studies show that only about 12% of crime victims seek out professional support from either real support providers or therapy professionals.

All too often, victims turn to family & friends, or worse, self-proclaimed experts!

Victim support groups can be an important source of emotional support for people who have been the victims of scams or financial fraud. These groups can provide a safe and supportive space for people to share their experiences, discuss their emotions, and receive encouragement and advice from others who have been through similar experiences. Being part of a victim support group can help people feel less isolated and alone, and can provide them with a sense of community and belonging. Victim support groups can also be a helpful resource for people who are looking for information about how to recover from financial fraud and scams, and for ideas about how to move forward and protect themselves in the future.
