There Is No Cloud – It Is Just Someone Else’s Computer

Most people who use the Internet constantly have no appreciation of the deeper meaning in their dependency!

A SCARS Commentary!

There Is No Cloud – It Is Just Someone Else’s Computer

As Parler Recently Discovered.

Our organization depends on Facebook. Our websites depend on a hosting company. Etc. etc. etc.

We are all totally dependent on others. The age of ownership and self-reliance is ending. Everything is rented or borrowed from someone else!

In effect, we have returned to feudalism. “By your leave my lord” we all exist now. And the lords make it clear what are their priorities. And what they expect from us “serfs”

We all work to pay for our luxuries and our basics now, not for our futures. Now, we all know how easy it can all be taken away. Just look at the pandemic, and how much we lost – some from the disease some from government reactions to it.

We say this not to be political, but to help you have a sense of reality.

Yes, Facebook and all of social media is to blame for much of what is wrong with us. We sold our souls to Mark Zuckerberg to be able to share our lives 24/7.

Yes, governments are to blame. Yes, criminals are to blame.

The only questions now are what can be done about it? Is it too late to ever take back control? It was not so long ago – 40 years more or less – two generations ago when we traded it willingly.

Will the government support us in helping us recover what we lost? Not as much as we would like. If fact they are also on a major power grab now! They want us all to be victims – victims will follow who they say, and are easier to control.

Will social media change on its own? Absolutely not. Not ever, until they are forced to by government, but right now they are in bed together!

As a nonprofit, we are limited by our budget. We can only do so much, so we focus on what we can do! We can’t change government and we can’t change social media – but we can help you and lessen the impact.

But We Are All Prey

It really comes down to recognizing that we are all prey. In recognizing that we can evolve to be resilient and resistant to predators. But it depends on each and EVERY one of you to help spread the message and rescue those that we can.

MOST OF YOU ARE NOT HELPING!

Some of you are amazing, but most people do not even report online crime nor tell others about it. This is a choice they are making.

Remember that choice when a family member or good friend becomes a scam victim. Did you do all you could to prevent it? Some did, most did not.

Does this sound very judgmental? It is analytical. But, it is designed to get you to think about each of your decisions and choices – this is what victims – what prey – have to do! One wrong step and a lion eats you! One wrong step and you are the victim of a cybercriminal!

The events of the last couple of months have shown clearly the degree that we do not have any power to change the giants that live in this world without massive cooperation. That cooperation extends all the way down to YOU personally.

We Need An Army!

We need you to be an Army of voices speaking out about online crime to everyone that will listen and even those that will not listen.

2021 is the year we all must become active, not through hate or anger like those rioting in the street, or other amateur anti-scam hate groups, but through natural selection.

We all must become the fittest for survival in this increasingly hostile environment filled with predators of every size: from Google & Facebook, to scammers and cybercriminals on the ground. They are of every size and every type, and we must constantly be on guard. A giant crocodile can kill, but so can a mosquito.

We Must Constantly Be On Guard

We all are the Gazelles in the grassland of the lions.

We must survive and spread our knowledge like genetic information to future generations. All the while, others are trying to distract us from our reality. Don’t let it happen.

Stay focused on your survival and the survival of our truth. Do not let this depress you, instead let it activate and energize you!

Help us to help others.

  • Tell everyone you know and warn them about scams & cybercrime – help them to know the real cost.
  • Change your buying and consumption habits to support those that are also spreading the word.
  • Make better choices and think through who you give your loyalty.
  • Teach your children to be better at avoiding the real predators – that includes social media itself.
  • Do not give your money to frivolous causes, look closely at who is really working to help you personally. To donate to SCARS go to Donate.AgainstScams.org
  • Volunteer to work with us to help other victims to show the path to recovery. Go to www.AgainstScams.org to learn about our Volunteer Program.

This is the way … to make a difference in a world turning against us.

Will you join us and make a difference? We hope you will.

A Word About Truth

There are universal truth’s, absolute truth’s and relative truth’s, and now, I think we need to add digital truths to the aforementioned trio OR we must modify them to extend TO the digital realm and thus take into consideration some fundamental digital “ism’s” that we are finding:

There is no freedom: Unlike the air we breathe, or possibly the ground we stand upon, nothing in the digital realm is truly “ours.” Therefore we are all beholden to someone else.

Everything you say can be used against you: We live in the moment, we live from one sound bite to the next, often forgetting that which we have left behind… however, the digital realm does not forget – for example, www.Archive.org stores 25 years of web publications.

You will not be forgotten: Your physical form may long be gone, but your digital fingerprints live on through your interactions. Just look at Facebook as an example of this. People die and their profiles live on.

There is nowhere to hide: Anonymity is an ever-shrinking island, with more and more ways to find you, and your opinions from the past. Pity the hater 18 year old that will forever be judged by the posts of their youth.

In the physical world, many have fought for centuries for their freedom. But, in this digital world, we now occupy – the battle has yet to be truly recognized. We have a lot to learn, a lot to go through, and, unfortunately, the very mechanisms we want to use TO address this are owned by others. This means we can be censored and condemned at any time if our views are inconsistent with the mob.

God help us all!

Regardless, we wish you the best and a safe future!

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:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance – get a police report number
  2. 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
  3. Your National Police or FBI www.IC3.gov & FTC www.FTC.gov/complaint
  4. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide. Your reports are essential even if the police cannot take action!
