Advocating Against Romance Scammers - Advocating For You
Advocating Against Romance Scammers was created to help bring awareness and convey the way online romance scams have impacted our world today. The ill aftermaths of poor platform security along with the significantly outdated Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, has allowed criminals to use the platforms as their base to perform unlawful acts such as identity theft, money laundering, sales of fake government id's etc. We cannot knowingly consent such activity to transpire and we refuse to "roll over" to big tech companies. We are not just a voice, but your voice. Help bring awareness to the cause and sign the petition. Every signature matters!

LEGISLATURE
As for Representative Kinzinger’s office, they are moving along steadily. If anything is to be drawn up, all research must be done with precision. When presenting to the House, it’s crucial to have all your I’s dotted and T’s crossed. Please know, work and research is continuing to be done and we have not been told “there’s nothing we can do”! That in itself is hugely encouraging! A follow up call was suggested with Bryan and I for the very near future.
