SCARS™ Anti-Scam Tip: Uninvited Strangers
This Is Not Terribly Complicated – You Just Have To Stop Talking With Strangers Online
Everyone on Social Media gets contact and friend requests almost daily until you decide to stop it!
When you get a FRIEND REQUEST from someone you do not know – it is important to decline it
AND THEN MARK IT AS SPAM IF THE PLATFORM HAS THAT OPTION!
Facebook, LinkedIn, and others have options to allow you to mark unsolicited contact requests as SPAM.
It only takes a few SPAM flags before the profile is locked! Unfortunately, almost no one does this.
Scams exist because most people fail to do the right things when confronted with criminals.
They don’t flag them, they don’t report them. It is all just too inconvenient and time-consuming.
BUT CONSIDER HOW TIME-CONSUMING BEING SCAMMED IS!
A moment now can help save someone else years of recovery – just like you!
BE A GOOD CITIZEN – DO YOUR DUTY – FLAG, REPORT, REPEL!

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:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- 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
- Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network « HERE » or on « www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
