War on Scams: What Does It Really Take To Stop Scams?
It Begins With A Complete Understanding That Everything Is Connected In The War On Scams
We cannot ask any part of this complex problem to solve it for the whole. All the pieces have to come together to do it!
Most of the world is asking that victims solve this problem by not becoming involved and sending money to fraudsters. That is unrealistic.
The reason that asking victims to stop is because all anti-scam education ultimately fails. Why? Because NO ONE believes this will happen to them. And when it does, the manipulation and control that these criminals have over victims overcome all avoidance education.
War on Scams: So the victims cannot stop this.
The police cannot stop this either. Why? Because over 97% of all of these crimes are not reported to them by the victims. If the police do not even know about the crimes then how can they prioritize to fight a battle in ignorance?
War on Scams: So the police cannot stop this.
Big Tech has no interest in stopping this! Why? Because we all gave them immunity through the communications decency act. They are only interested in counting active profiles, so the number of fake profiles and criminals on their platforms only enhances their shareholder value and ad revenue.
War on Scams: So the Big Tech industry will not stop this.
A couple of years back we started to see real legislative change in the U.S. to revoke or change the Communications Decency Act and introduce other laws and regulations. Most of that was either discontinued, or outright terminated. Law enforcement seems now more focused on hate and climate crimes than the millions of cybercrime victims in the United States alone, not to mention worldwide.
War on Scams: Congress, though, can solve this!
But in order to solve it we need a congress willing to act. We have not had that for years. Maybe the current election will change that. Scams affect EVERY woman, man, and child in the world. Both directly and through the hidden tax on the world’s economies.
Here Is Why We Still Have A War On Scams Right Now, And Why It Is Expanding
Unfortunately, nothing is working right now. Each of the four major partners is not focused on doing what they need to do.
- Not the Victims
- Not the Police
- Not the Big Tech industry
- Not Government Lawmakers
If any part of the four breaks down or does not do its part we all lose in the War on Scams!
◾️️ Each victim is responsible for reporting these crimes, yet only 1 to 3 in 100 actually does! That has to change now!
◾️️ Big Tech has complete immunity and does nothing meaningful to address the problem.
◾️️ Money still flows without any significant restrictions even though there is massive anti-money laundering laws in place!
◾️️ Governments do not have adequate and updated laws to handle all cybercrime!
Do You See How Much Is Not Being Done?
Nothing will change until the cornerstones are in place:
◾️️ Laws (specifically require all online accounts to be verified, and remove immunity from the CDA) – this is where it starts
◾️️ Big Tech (enforces the laws to limit their own liability)
◾️️ Massively restrict international money flows from individuals to something like $200 a day
◾️️ Police act on these crimes in every case
◾️️ Victims report all fraud
This is what will create an environment to resolve this! This is the SCARS Model.
You can help us by supporting our efforts to bring this about through volunteering and your donations at donate.AgainstScams.org
You can help by voting for candidates that support regulating Big Tech and enacting laws to control global transnational crime AND will force law enforcement (especially the FBI) to put the resources needed on these crimes!
You can become a shareholder of the BIG TECH companies – by buying a single share you can force them to hear your voice.
If you are a victim, you have to report these crimes – every one – we know it is hard and we are here to help. Please let us.
