We Focus On Victims!
The focus of the Society is online scams and cybercrime victims, primarily on Relationship Scams (also known as Romance, Dating, Love, or Sweetheart Scams), but also on related scam attacks directed at individuals in their personal life and at business including Phishing and BEC Scams.
Fraudsters target adults, the elderly, and even more and more our children, teens, and young adults. They target all races and genders and employ racism and gender bias to create maximum vulnerability.
Scammers are part of large scale criminal transnational enterprises and even fund and support terrorist organizations such as ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and others. Some have workforces numbered in the thousands. Our estimates are that there are over five hundred fifty thousand professional scammers operating worldwide.
Fortunately, global law enforcement has stepped up their operations and arresting scammers in record numbers annually.
The Society’s primary effort is directed at providing professional crime victims’ assistance and support for scam victims. But through our understanding and analysis, we are also the primary advocacy organization to work with governments around the world and change the legal landscape enabling ever greater enforcement. Our knowledge acquisition and dissemination publishing activities also help everyone avoid scams and learn online safety.
SCARS is also a primary online crime reporting center distributing online crime data worldwide.
Scams are a serious global problem that requires professional solutions that SCARS provides.
