Just yesterday, this recovery and reassurance topic has reached 1.5 million reads. I sincerely hope that the members' contributions here have helped to overcome the damage created by scammers to others' lives. I hope that it has convinced readers that recovery from being scammed is not only possible, but shown to make the survivors here stronger, looking forward in a better direction in their lives . I hope that this topic has taught them that they have responsibilities to protect themselves in the future from the dangers of the internet lurking online, just waiting to hurt them again in the same way or in another if they do not educate themselves.
The "Christmas Holiday Push" is going full strength right now. The scammers want their new iPhones , PCs, and Holiday Cash. If anyone online you have never met before is asking for money or gifts, they are always a scammer. Real people NEVER ask for such things of others online; no matter what the "good excuse" they tell you, they are lying and trying to scam you for every last dime you have. If you run into a scammer, please stop talking to them and post their details on the forum.
