Introducing a brand new Hoax-Slayer Project - Scam Victim Stories

Support for Scam Victims

We have just finished setting up a section of the website dedicated to publishing real stories submitted by victims of scammers. Perhaps you've been a victim of a dating scam? Or a money-laundering job scam? Have you lost money via an advance-fee scam or a phishing scam? Been victimized by an over-payment scammer? Suffered losses via some other type of Internet based fraud? If you or someone close to you has been a victim of an Internet scam, you can submit your story for possible publication on the Hoax-Slayer website. By telling your story, you may be able to stop other people from becoming victims. Your story may provide much needed support for others who recognize their own circumstances via the experiences you share.
