SCARS say they are committed to doing everything possible to eradicate the plague of online scams.
To support that goal, they have developed a campaign for 2017 / 2018 to enlist the public’s help in providing direct information in the local community. they are asking SCARS Members to begin organizing opportunities in their towns and communities to inform and expand awareness about romance scams and other forms of fraud.
SCARS asks those that are interested, once they are approved for participation in the Campaign, to contact local community organizations, from schools to civic groups, private clubs, and even work with your local police, to better educate your fellow residents about these severe crimes and how they affect us all.
