Advocating Against Romance Scammers
Click Here for Desktop View
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 The ill aftermaths of poor platform security along with the significantly outdated Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, has allowed criminals to use the platforms as their base to perform unlawful acts such as identity theft, money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!
Personal Note: Having over an estimated 3500 volunteer/advocate hours not including our in person and or teleconference meetings, along with travel, We have no plans to cease this fight, but every intention to follow through until identity theft victims and scam survivors feel vindicated. We feel it is an honor and a privilege to be a voice for so many

THE WORK KEEPS GOING....

No matter what’s going on in the world, we ARE still here! Congress has limited their onsite employees at this time, therefore, we have to be patient with the future plans coming up. Congress is working on other matters that are currently taking precedence over social media concerns, and that is unfortunate but absolutely understandable. As far as we are aware, our bi-monthly call is still “a go” this Wednesday with the ACCO (Alliance to Counter Crimes Online). This is a great group of experts we belong to that are all fighting for online safety. It will be good to hear what they are doing on their ends of the world regarding the battle against online crimes.
The petition continues to receive signatures, the Youtube channel is active, and we are always accepting letters of support for the need of platform safety and or your own personal story of how you were affected by a scammer (Were you a victim? Friend of Family member of a victim? Are you an Identity Theft Victim?).
We of course will always keep you updated with what’s going on. During this congressional downtime we hope to provide more PSA’s to help share, and educate on the issue of Romance Scams.
Stay safe, stay inside as much as possible, and do something nice for yourself. We all deserve that! Many thoughts and prayer to everyone around the world! AARS
