ROMANCE SCAMS... WE NEED AWARENESS AND A CAMPAIGN
WE HAVE TO EDUCATE WOMEN AND MEN NOT TO RESPOND TO CONTACT FROMTHOSE THEY DO NOT KNOW. WE HAVE TO EDUCATE PEOPLE
TO KNOW THAT THEY WILL BE FAKE.
ONLY WHEN THEY HAVE NOBODY LEFT TO TALK TO WILL THIS GET LESS.
This is something on a huge scale and very little is being done to tackle the problem.
The main subject of these men used to scam women are United States Military personnel. People fighting for the security of their country, yet they can do nothing about their own lives being stolen and used. Other men and women are used as well, if you've ever had a picture online.. then you are fair game for scammers.
Lives are wrecked. People are losing a lot of money and scammers are gaining because no one is interested in stopping them.
Facebook is carrying thousands of these profiles. Many Thousands. There is not way to report a scammer. If you used the reporting system that Facebook has, rarely do they take them down. If they do they are back in a short time.
With the advances in technology it is surely not hard to see when a U.S. General as 50 profiles all set up in a short time and sending out hundreds of friend requests. Or, as one we found, a U.S. Soldier, slightly different names had 140 accounts, all contacting women.
WHY IS PICTURE RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY NOT USED?
Some men are used so many times you wonder just how it can continue to happen.
Why?? Nigeria does nothing. Ghana does nothing and this is where the bulk of Romance Scamming originates. Scamming for personal gain and to fund terrorism, what better way than to use U.S. soldiers, the very people they will use the money against.
Nigerian and Ghanaian Police ignore it. It is a way of life and of getting money there. They do not see it as a priority. It is done openly, Western Union and Moneygram being the chief ways of getting their money. It would not be hard to stop this. Their Facebook profiles often boasting about the money they make and the misery they cause, not hiding their identity.
Africa isn't interested. The EFCC, set up to fight financial fraud in Nigerian isn't interested. They seem to not mind the evil their people want to inflict on the world and not mind the money they bring in and spend.
THE FIGHT IS GOING TO HAVE TO COME FROM US. FROM NEWS AGENCIES, NEWSPAPERS TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THESE AWFUL CRIMES. EMBASSIES TO ADVISE IT'S PEOPLE. THE U.S. ARMY TO FIGHT IT'S PERSONNEL BEING ALLOWED TO BE CARRIED FRAUDULENTLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ESPECIALLY FACEBOOK.
SHARE THIS WITH ANYONE YOU CAN THINK OF... WE NEED A CAMPAIGN OF ACTION GET THE WORD OUT THERE ALL AROUND THE WORLD THAT THIS IS HAPPENING.
TO STOP MEN AND WOMEN LETTING THE CRIMINALS INTO THEIR LIVES IN THE FIRST PLACE.
WE NEED WESTERN UNION AND MONEYGRAM TO STOP SENDING MONEY INTO NIGERIA, GHANA AND SOME OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES.
WILL IT STOP IT.. MAYBE NOT... BUT IT WILL RAISE AWARENESS AND SO IT WILL STOP BEING THE CRIME NO ONE HEARS ABOUT UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM.
THE CRIME THAT WRECKS LIVES AND PEOPLE.
LET US DO SOMETHING NOW...
SUPPORT THIS CAMPAIGN.
