I joined SCARS as a devastated romance scam victim 2 years ago. Now I can say I am a survivor. SCARS showed me the path to recovery and helped me move forward. In the support group I joined, I felt safe and encouraged to share my story with other members of the group, to talk openly about my feelings, doubts without fear of being judged or ashamed. Easy access to a wide range of articles [...]

M.S.

This is the only Support group for romance fraud that supports you with integrity. I immediately sought a support group after I learned I was a victim of fraud. Unfortunately, I found several groups that took me down the wrong path and added pain and confusion to my struggle. SCARS HELPED ME in a time I need people who have had this experience and supported me. SCARS IS WHAT GOT ME ON THE RIGHT PATH, [...]

SCARS has given me the knowledge and guidance to understand the dynamics of how a scam takes place. It has made me realize that anyone can fall victim to these manipulators and to not be ashamed and silent anymore. SCARS members have become a family who gives support without judgment. It is a place where no one wants to be, but are thankful that SCARS exists.

SCARS give the scam victims feelings of safety, understanding. Victims are never blamed, never accused but provided with the knowledge-lack of which cost them so much and ongoing education which helps them to stay safe online. The most important thing for devastated victims is showing them that recovery is possible. SCARS do not only show it but help and support victims in their recovery. I owe my recovery to SCARS. Thank you Dr Tim, thank [...]

SCARS has provided information that I wish I had access to before my scammer was able to pull me in. SCARS has given support that helps with the healing process and is an organization that every person on social media should know about. Scars can save others from emotional and financial scams but then can offer support and help for those who have already gone through it.

Debby J.

I reached out to The Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) after my relationship fraud story went public...national television public. The support group and the leadership team were there for me right away and guided me through the recovery process with the most thorough educational information/studies/first hand accounts I've ever seen. There are thousands of cybersecurity companies around the world, but SCARS is the ONLY victim-centric organization for me.

Great article regarding Google Hangouts and Scammers using this app online to steal/con legit users. I believe if a few examples of a few brief scams used by the twisted liars would help hit home.
