Be Heard, Be Empowered: Join the Fight Against Romance Scams with the My Voice Campaign

Online romance promises connection, warmth, and maybe even love. Unfortunately, it can also become a breeding ground for deception and financial exploitation through romance scams. These scams, often sophisticated and emotionally manipulative, leave victims feeling devastated, both financially and emotionally.

But there's hope.

Advocating Against Romance Scams (AARS), a dedicated non-profit organization, is fighting back and giving victims a voice through their impactful My Voice Campaign.

What is the My Voice Campaign?

The My Voice Campaign provides a safe, anonymous platform for victims of romance scams and identity theft to share their stories. By completing a simple "My Voice" card, you can recount your experience, detailing the emotional and financial impact of the scam.

Your voice matters. Sharing your story through the My Voice Campaign serves several crucial purposes:

  • Raises awareness: Personal stories paint a vivid picture of the human cost of romance scams, urging others to be vigilant and avoid becoming victims.
  • Influences policymakers: The collected data from "My Voice" cards are presented to legislators, advocating for stronger regulations and holding platforms accountable for preventing scams.
  • Empowers victims: Sharing your experience can be a powerful step towards healing and reclaiming your power. You are not alone, and your voice can lead to positive change.
