We are an established nonprofit nongovernmental organization focused on our core mission, to manifest a better way to address online fraud. The fact is that most initiatives the world over have been failures. It is now time to follow a different path, even though it is path followed countless times before in other areas of crime advocacy and in other industries. It is time for change!

We Are Building A World-Class Advocacy, Standards, Accreditation, Education And Support Organization For The Anti-Scam World

We believe in building a “big tent” organization that can hold everyone sincerely interested in helping to create a better future that is much more free of online fraud. This is happening in many ways, but principal amongst them is by making a better, smarter and more effective anti-scam organization that is concerned about the people they support.
