It is that time of year again, when we here at ScamVictimsUnited.com join together to help out others effected by these scams. This is a great way for those who have been victims and are now financially stable again to help out those who have just recently been hit by these scams.


This is something that is VERY special to my husband and myself since we became scam victims just before the holidays in 2002, and if it were not for the support of family and friends, it could have been a much different Christmas for us and our two children.


We call it our "Secret Santa Program" and here is how it works -
If you are a parent who has recently been hit by a scam and is now wondering how you are going to provide Christmas gifts for you child, please send a private message to me with the subject "Dear Santa" and in it list the ages of your children and one gift that they would like to see from Santa this year, along with your complete mailing address. (Please remember that this is supposed to be for small children who still believe in the magic of Santa)


Everyone else that visits this site, if you would like to help to make Christmas better for one child, or one family, please send me a private message with the subject "Santa's Helper" and I will then forward you the information of one family that needs help this year. Please only contact me if you plan of following through . . . this could be the ONLY gift that some of these children get this year!


And on a final note, if you do not wish to do either of these, we are looking to get official non-profit status in 2009, and we here at ScamVictimsUnited.com would be happy to accept any donations that will help us in this, and help to keep this site up and running and helping so many people. If you would like to make a donation to this cause, please email/private message me for information on where to send your donations, or make donations through paypal here

If anyone has any questions, on any of this, feel free to email/private message me.

Another idea was just given to me . . . if you have gift cards that you have not used and you would like to donate THOSE to be passed on to families in need, that would also be a great way to help out. That way the family can use the gift card to go and purchase their own gifts.

I just wanted to get this back up to the top, and say that I know that times are tough for everyone . . . heck, I am even working a temp job that pays less than I was making last year at this time . . . but for those out there who can even spare $10, I know that it would go a long way to make Christmas morning happier for the children of parents who have negative bank accounts right now due to these scams.

So many people have said on this message board that this message board has helped them, so let's help out again, and it is also my hope that those people we help this year will still be a part of this site in future years and they can then help out another family some day.

Instead of re-typing all of this info, I am just going to do a quick reply to get it back up to the top.
