In this edition of our SCARS Webinar Series, we talk about short-term scams where the scammers place the victim in panic and create a sense of urgency!. These scams are typically about some form of emergency or urgent situation where the victim has to send money immediately to avoid serious consequences. Hosted by SCARS Directors: Debby Montgomery Johnson & Tim McGuinness, Ph.D. Contact us if you are a victim of these crimes and are interested in our recovery program and support groups.

Report The Crime
You are the victim of organized transnational criminals!
Take this seriously. The reason scams are so out of control is that only about 1% of victims report these crimes!
Every report matters!
Police may not chase after the scammers but the reports help the government to extradite them!
Reporting also restores your power and control!
It helps you accept that you are the victim and not to blame!
