Yes, I believe it did. I think I would have got caught, emotionally if not financially, if I hadn't found my way here.

really enjoyed chatting with my scammer everyday when suddenly he got into so many trouble: death, company foreclosure, lawsuit, asking for money (what a pity!)--i was having a 50/50 feeling then but i thought i still have to check, meaning i didn't even know this guy so why should i give money? i googled my scammer, found his name there, and luckily google led me here at RS. this very good website really helped me a lot from getting into so much trouble. :)

It was too late for me. It would not have helped anyway as I was the first that posted those scammers. Maybe I had seen the signs, but I had no idea there was something like romance scamming.

i knew about this site while i was being scammed but i really didn't think it would happen to me! friends and family warned me that the man/woman i was in touch with might be a scammer so i researched scammers a little and found this site along with a few others. i even exposed a few scammers through this site while i was being scammed! but i refused to believe that i was being scammed myself! :shock:

I found RS too late. I had no idea regarding this Romance scam. But anyway after I found RS, it opened my eyes and give me the knowledge on how these leeches operates. It was late but better late than never. RS helped me not to be scammed anymore. Thank you RS! :kissing:

OMG Yes! It made all my gut feelings (doubts) very real. He had not approached me yet for money. I would never have given him money, but would've really gotten hurt emotionally (was on my way there). Listen to your gut! Thank you for this website.
