Thank you for this website. I was just recently scammed on e harmony. I am a 73 year old woman who lost my entire savings to the scammer after 4 months of emails, txting and phone calls. I am still in pain and denial of my losses.
Your words of encouragement are helping.

Sherim,

I am really sorry knowing you were defrauded. It would help if you can share the scammer details with us - those people are playing the same game with more victims in the same time - some of those victims might be saved from dealing with the same situation you are facing now if those details are known.

If you are unsure about what need to be exposed regarding the scammer, try, please, to forward to my email address the emails / pictures / documents received from the scammer and any other person contacting you on his behalf. We will remove your information - if mentioned - before posting. You can find my email address below, under every post I made on the forum.

Please read https://scamsurvivors.com/forum/viewtop ... 11&t=26504 and learn what you need to do for protecting yourself.

Also this topic here: https://scamsurvivors.com/forum/viewtop ... 11&t=37058 might help you during the recovery process.

Based on the details you can send to us we can see if there are any ways you may use to recover at least a part of the money you lost.

I know that words usually don't count a lot in such cases and I also know that what we can do is limited. You are not alone and we are here to help you as much as we can.
Help yourself by helping others - report your scammer here.
Google can be your best friend;use it if you have doubts about someone met online. If someone met online only asks for money, no matter what reason, it´s 100% scam.

Hello,Sorry for my english,ı am not a native english speaker, my scam has been 3 months,ı had very pain for 2 months,it was like a hell,now ı am not having very much pain,ı accepted some realities...

but ı have still worrying, yes ı read the posts,but still ı can't feel free.
Here is recovery and reassurance topic,but ı could not find a place to be able to write in other topics. they are closed topic. where must ı write?

ı closed all the social nets,facebook etc, ı never paid, my scammer was from ivory coast...

I have graduated from university,ı will be teacher,but in schools,theacher's names and their e-mail contact are put on the website of school,ı am scare of this,ı can get the sack,if the video resurface. ı can not focus to my future life because of these thoughts...

if scammers see my name ,they may contact to me again..etc.. or if ı work in other work,forexample,in a company as a manager, company can also want to use my name on their webpages, ...

So may be scammer can find me again by this way,they can search my name and they can find me by this way,these thoughts make me scare...Because we exist with our names,we work with our names,whatever we do,we have to use our names,on companies'webpages where we work...

We can not know scammers did not store the videos in harddisks,may be in a x time,they will want to check the old victims,in case they need money,may be he could not do money recently ,thats why, wants to check the old victims...

Okey we should think positive,but to think positive does not vanish the nagative things... please do not be angry me,but ı feel like this,thank you for your supports...

You are worrying unnecessarily over things that scammers do not do. They do not send messages to your work. They do not send messages to school websites. They do not hold videos for months in hard drives. They do not chase people who paid nothing months before.

If you have heard nothing from them in 3 months, then it's time to move on. Use all new email accounts and profiles, and get on with your life.
If anyone asks you for money on the Internet they are always a scammer, 100% of the time.
