Scammers 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. Every Race & Color

They really do not care what race or ethnicity you are – you are just money to them! Well, most of the time.


It is almost inevitable that race comes into the conversation when talking about scamming since a majority of it originates with West Africans. Nigerians especially have perfected their models and have spread throughout the world. And they have expanded and trained other Africans to scam almost as well as they do such as in Ghana.

And yes, for them, race is very much a part of the component but for a different reason than you think.

They convince themselves that they are fighting back against the Colonial Oppression of Africa.

Of course, they forget that their countries have been free for generations and it is their own greed and corruption that is oppressing them! The only people that still engage in slavery are them!

They are especially ruthless on African Americans who they consider to be traitors.

But This Is All Just Propaganda

It is important to remember that there are scammers in China, and Russia, and Turkey & the Middle East, in India, Pakistan, in Vietnam and the Philippines. Every race is well represented in the scamming world.

Even African scammers scam their own people. This is so much less about race or “anti-colonialism” than it is simply about criminality and the scammers using childish justifications for their own inhuman 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..

Almost everyone visiting this website is a victim/survivorSurvivor A Scam Survivor is a victim who has been able to fully accept the reality of their situation. That they were the victim of a crime and are not to blame. They are working on their emotional recovery and reduction of any trauma either on their own, through a qualified support organization, or through counseling or therapy. And has done their duty and reported the crime to their local police, national police, and on or almost a victim or knows someone who is a victim, and we have people from dozens of different countries, races, cultures and religions.


Victims come in all colors! They speak dozens of languages!

Victims are from every culture and every religion! All victims are human beings.

Never let race play any role in your thoughts and dialogs because that is just what the scammers want, it is the scammers acting to divide us.

They and many in anti-scam hate groups and in politics want you to remain a victim. You are easier to guide and control if you are a victim.

We are all better than that! We are united as victims. But we do not want you to be a victim.

We Want You To Be A Survivor!

Please always remember that!
