SCARS Offers Free Professional Support Groups For Every Relationship Scam Victim Online Worldwide

This includes: Romance Scams, Relationship/Investment Cryptocurrency Scams, and Many Phone Scams too!

SCARS is a government-registered online crime victims’ assistance organization that offers the victims of scams/financial fraud a safe place to recover from their traumatic experiences and education for their recovery.

SCARS Support Groups for Scam Victims are always FREE for as long as you need them!

Our goal is to help each scam victim anywhere in the world through our professionally managed support groups. These are for scam victims in the U.S. and for all other countries. [Some countries are excluded for the safety of the victims under our care.]

SCARS provides online support groups for every scam victim. We have helped thousands of scam victims find their path to recovery and happier life after the deep trauma of their scam. Our groups are comprised of other scam victims that truly understand what you have gone through without any of the hate and extreme anger of so many fake amateur anti-scam hate groups online.

SCARS support groups offer scam victims a place to heal and turn away from the scam, allowing them to return to their and healthy life again.

Our groups are professionally managed by the victims’ assistance professionals at SCARS and by an amazing corps of SCARS VOLUNTEERS (who are all also scam survivors themselves) to provide you with a safe place with people just like you. These are no-judgment zones where we truly understand how you were scammed and eliminate the blame of so many who do not understand.

Each of our SCARS Groups offers each Scam Victim:

  • Focus on self-care and recovery, not on scammers and hate
  • Where to turn for resources, knowledge, and education about the scam (provided by SCARS)
  • Where to turn to for additional support – health and trauma care
  • Help with the local and state police reporting process – where to go and what to say
  • Guidance with national-level reporting (FBI, FTC, RCMP, etc.)
  • How to obtain crime victims’ benefits – counseling, financial support, and more (provided by local governments and programs)

SCARS Group Members

All SCARS SUPPORT activities are FREE to all scam victims worldwide. 

We have groups in different languages, such as English or Spanish. Additionally, our SCARS Partners provide groups in numerous languages around the world. We do everything we can to be inclusive and help every victim that we can regardless of where they are from.

This is serious because we are professionals and this is a serious level of support.

Once you ask to join, WE WILL REVIEW YOUR INFORMATION, and you will be reviewed for the safety of all members (to exclude haters and scammers), 

Later on, as you progress through your recovery, SCARS will offer you opportunities to assist other victims if you are interested.
