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 The ill aftermaths of poor platform security along with the significantly outdated Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, has allowed criminals to use the platforms as their base to perform unlawful acts such as identity theft, money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!

Latest Update - Advocating Against Romance Scams
*** UPDATE ***
Published on Wed Nov 27 10:48am
On November 26, 2019 at 1:00pm PST, Bryan and I had our seventh call with the Legislative Director from Representative Kinzinger’s office. As many of you may know, Rep. Kinzinger is also an identity theft victim of online romance scams, and why he and his office are voicing a need for change within platform safety. On July 31, 2019, Rep. Kinzinger presented a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, demanding answers in regard to the safety and security of their platform users.
The call started out with an apology for the repetitive report, however no apology was necessary. As we have mentioned before, there is a significant amount of research that must go in to building or amending a law, so much so, this could take several months to conduct. At this moment, Rep. Kinzinger’s office is working diligently on just this. There are many factors that their team must consider, such as what will or will not go against the First Amendment. If a bill is introduced without the proper investigative research and proof behind the need, the bill can easily be rejected by other members of Congress. Bryan and I are very thankful that Rep. Kinzinger’s office is not only dedicated, but thorough in any process of the law and we are looking forward to our follow up call either just before the new year or soon after.
