The website says it exists because: Scammers will take your money with no cares about the lives it ruins. People are nothing but a money amount to them – a living, breathing ATM machine.
The site is run by volunteers and has three goals:
- To make scammers’ lives harder by exposing their details and scripts to search engines.
- Educating the public, thus 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 better.
They cover a wide range of scams including:- 419, fund transfer, tax refund, beneficiary/inheritance/next of kin, hitman, parcel, gold/diamond, charity, love/romance/catfish, dying widow/widower, military, lottery, secret shopper/work from home, business/investment/supply invitation, loan, ATM card, tax refund, recovery/compensation, conference, Craigslist, webcam blackmail, phishing, grandchild/friend in distress and car wrap.
The website staff offer non judgmental help and advice for those scammed online.
For many people who have been scammed, the psychological effects are worse than the monetary loss.
