As users of the Internet increase, so does the epidemic of men and women being scammed for money.
- Hearts are being broken

- Individuals are committing suicide
- Innocent people are going to jail
- The identity of innocent people is being stolen
- Billions of dollars are leaving our country, thus weakening our economy
It could happen to your grandmother, your grandfather, your mother, your father, your brother and/or sister, your aunt, your uncle, your cousins, your friends.…and yes, even you. Nobody is immune!
Hosea 4:6 – My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
At Silent Victim No More our mission is to create awareness worldwide of the Internet Romance Scam, facilitate educational and awareness programs that will prevent innocent people from being scammed, and provide a safe environment for those who have been scammed. In this environment, victims will come out of denial, break free from their scammer, heal their hearts, learn healthy life skills, and regain their life back. They will go from being a victim to being an overcomer.
Scammers will only do what brings them money. Once the achievement of our mission is fulfilled, people will be aware, educated, and no longer engage with scammers. This will cut off the cash flow scammers once enjoyed, and eradicate the Internet Romance Scam. No more innocent people will have their hearts broken, assets or identity stolen, go to jail or commit suicide. The billions of dollars that once left our country will now stay in our country and strength our economy.
