SCARS™ Insight: Where Do Scammers Find You?
Would You Believe It Is Facebook Groups?
If you belong to any type of a BUY & SELL or DEALS Group on Facebook you are an automatic target for scammers!
Scammers have profiled typical victims to be members of these groups.
You will find them full of scammers targeting their members just like YOU!
Scammers know that the BUY & SELL groups are easy hunting grounds because their members have a predisposition to being fooled – meaning you are looking for fantasies – the best product for almost nothing. Of course, some of these groups offer great value, but it does not change the scammer’s view of them.
What Can You DO?
Leave Them! Right Now!
You know you have been scammed or you would not be here. You need to know that once scammed you are susceptible to being scammed again. You must take extra effort to change your habits and behaviors to protect yourself and that means not being places where scammers are.
It is not complicated. Avoid the places where scammers look for victims!
You also must make sure that you have done everything you can to lock up your private information and block strangers from contacting you.
This Is The Only Way To Stay Safe Online!

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:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov »)
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network HERE » or on www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
