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 The ill aftermaths of poor platform security along with the significantly outdated Section 230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!
Colonel Bryan Denny (Ret.) is an online identity theft victim and Mrs. Kathy Waters, is a friend of a romance scam
survivor who fell victim to a scammer by way of Bryan's photos. After Kathy approached Bryan to help confirm the scam,
the two joined forces to help bring awareness to all platform customers, congressional departments, and other
government agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission, the United States Pentagon, and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation. The duo has also presented multiple reports on platform safety to Facebook Inc., resulting in sit
down meetings with members of their policy advisory, technology and security team.
As of today, Kathy and Bryan are encouraging a change to
Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act
, and have engaged with several legislative staff on the issue.
Bryan and Kathy understand the hardships, embarrassment, and victimization that comes along with romance scams and
they are honored to help be the voice that so many entrust onto them.
