A recent report published states that 18 people fall victim to cybercrime every second. That's 556 million victims a year.
It also states that the direct costs of cybercrime worldwide are at $110 billion over the past 12 months.
Scammers will take your money no matter what its loss means to you. They don't care if it leaves you homeless,
hungry or without life-saving medicine for your children. You are nothing but a money amount to them.
Since 2005, I have worked both as a scambaiter and alongside teams helping those who have been scammed.
Along the way I've met some good people who have joined in the fight alongside me on this site.
ScamSurvivors.com is set up as a place for people to receive the help and advice they need.
The forum staff alone have over 15 years' experience in dealing with scammers. Our group of site helpers add many more to that number.
Together we offer to aid people in realizing they've been scammed and recovering from their encounter with a scammer.
We have a forum where people can read about scammers, post their scammer, ask for advice and feel like they have a place to be safe.
We also have a chat room, the link for which is on every forum page, where we offer more immediate advice and one to one help if needed.
This site has three goals, and they're very simple:
To make scammers' lives harder by exposing their details and scripts (or "formats" as they're known) to search engines.
Educating the public and thereby removing scammers' sources of income, as scams will continue as long as there are victims.
Helping people to see that, even after being scammed, they CAN move forward and things DO get easier.
ScamSurvivors is a caring community where we welcome your questions and concerns as well as offering advice
on how to avoid being targeted by scammers and supporting those who have been scammed.
A scammer may have taken your money and betrayed your trust, but he can't take your spirit.
We're here to help make sure that he doesn't.
