I just found out that I am a scam victim . . . what do I do now?

I am asked this question many times, and because I was once a scam victim I can relate to the feeling of just finding out that you have been scammed. When we were scammed there was a lot less information out on the internet about scams and what to do. Because of this I spent many hours calling people or on the internet searching for where to report this information. Now we have all of that in one place for you at's_check.htm

I would also suggest writing a summary of what happened to you. Include dates, times, names and locations. You can read my letter/summary at

Get a notebook and keep track of everything that happens from this day forward in regards to this scam. Each time you speak with the bank, anything you agree to with the bank needs to be recorded and documented.

If you would like to help to educate others about these scams, contact your local media and try to get your story in the news.
