Our Yahoo group:
Our group has over 20,000 members. You are not alone. This crime has happened to many people. It happens to college graduates as well as those who may have quit high school or have a GED. It happens to rich people as well as the middle class and poor. There is no age barrier. Anyone using the internet, social media websites, gaming rooms, closed groups, special interest groups, any “website”, can be potential online romance scam victims.
This group is open so that you may come in and read messages, however, you have to join in order to send messages. Read the introductory information before you join, especially the paragraph about changing and/or creating a new identity to use when you join. Here is the link to the group:
We are here to help. Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed. Generally people who have not been scammed believe this cannot happen to them. Believe me, it can happen to anyone who does not know how this type of scam works. We will help you learn these skills without judgment and/or criticism.
The first thing learned in our personal healing journey is; There are only 3 types people in this scamming world.
- Those that have been scammed and are not aware of it.
- Those that have been scammed and are aware of it.
- Those that have not yet been scammed.
