I'm not sure if this was brought up by anyone else, but I never did see a thread dedicated to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). I haven't personally filed a complaint with them just yet, but a friend suggested that I should do as such. The only problem is that I'm afraid that they won't listen to me and it will simply be a waste of time. Has anyone here on this forum successfully filed a complaint with BBB? When I mean successful, I mean, did they respond to your claim and take action? I want to file a complaint about an agency I went to a while back, but I'm kind of afraid to as this company may find out about my complaint. If anyone can give some sort of advice, it would be GREATLY appreciated!

It depends on the complaint, but yes, they do look into it and respond when needed. They are on our resource page.

I really want to know which department can help the internet scame victims. I went to FBI 2 times, police office 3 times, sent my file to Secrect Services, Postal investigation depart, IC3, and UK police and EFCC, all they only said they can not do anything for me, or no response, I feel bad is that everybody told me our IC3 is the right depart to send my file, but IC3 only sent me a NO_ERPLY email(you even can not reply to that email), I try to call IC3, but in their website, I even can not find a phone number to call, I emailed few additional emails to ask them to call me or email back to me, no respone at all! I feel dispointed deeply, our goverment can not just keep warning people, need to do something for victims! They want our file to only get a big statistic number, that their job, not do investigation for us! I have to hire private investigate teh scammer's hiden IP address and phone location, finially found he is in Nigeria (he said he is in USA and UK).

Currently there is not a department of the government that can help victims to recover any money lost, or to assist them with emergency funds to help them with day to day bills until they recover from the scam. As of now they collect the data and watch the trends . . . and that has been bugging me since 2002!!!!

This totally sucks! I was hit with a scam and found myself in a tough position financially, I couldn't get any help as such and had to get help from family members. I guess if the government did give out financial help it would cost a lot. Starting to see the light at then end of the tunnel this year. It will take a little time though.

Oh gee, I could not be more behind you on that Mike. Actually but please do not quote me onthis, is that the gvt and the law enforcement authorities are at lost here about what can be done

i am suffering each day and every day from being scammed but hey, the only voice we have is through our lawyers or sites like this one. Do not give up, and please share your pain that is what this is meant to be. Amongst all of us, we will help you and support you.

Lots of love and thumb up for posting
