SCARS™ Scam Basics: After A Romance Scam Comes More Scams

After The Initial Romance Scam Runs Its Course Scammers Have Many Other Options To Get Another Drop Of Blood From Their Victims

These are what we call “Follow On Scams”

  • The “Confession Scam” – is where the scam confesses their guilt, admits it was a scam, and begs forgiveness
  • The “I Really Love You Scam” – this is a variation on the Confession scam, but in this case, the scammer magically fell in “love” with the victim and all they want is to live happily ever after.
  • The “Police Investigative Scam” – the victim gets a message that the FBI, EFCC, or other agency will investigate the scam but just needs a bit of money for their trouble.
  • The “Money Recovery Scam” – where a private investigator, hacker, or other scammer saw that the victim was scammed and how unfair it all is, and for a small fee of a few hundreds to thousands, they will get the money back – this is a delusion called “Chasing the Money” scam.

These all work and work very well, because even long after the scam ends, not all victims have fully accepted the basic truth. Scammers scam, they lie, it is what they do. Nothing more mystical than that.

Scammers do not have the time to waste apologizing to victims. They will ONLY contact a victim to run another scam.

They know that if they can hook you again, that you are MORE likely to send money than the first time. It’s just how addictions work. If you were scammed the first time (money or not), then you are predisposed to be susceptible to being scammed again.

The Only Solution Is Never To Listen To The Scammer – Total Avoidance – Total Abstinence

Politicians and marketers know this too and use the same mechanisms.

What will it be? Live a life being scammed over and over, or live a life free of scams?

Those of you that have alcohol, smoking, or drug histories know this.
