Victim of scamming? What now?

Scammed? Sadly, there is not much you can do:

  1. Report a complaint to the police. Only the police have the capability of dealing with the fraudsters. Nonetheless, the chances are small that the police will actually start any investigation, let alone with any positive result. Scamming is becoming increasingly prevalent on the internet and is international in scope. These cases are often filed without result.

  2. Paying by credit card? Dispute your payment through the issuer of your credit card. Find more details about this under the heading ‘reclaiming money after error, theft or fraud’.
