The Keys to Motivating Yourself After a 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.!

Recognize that you were scammed. Admit it. Say it out loud! You were scammed! Don’t be ashamed.

  • Accept that you were manipulated.
  • They used you against yourself.
  • They got the better of you!
  • You gave them your money.

Accept that.

  • They are beyond your reach.
  • They live in countries across the ocean.
  • You can’t get them yourself!
  • It is time to stop complaining and do something!

Stop expecting justice.

  • Talk with other victims.
  • Share your story!

You can do something to make a difference.

You are not alone, but alone you fail. You need an Army! You need help! You need action!
