Since the late 1990's, social networking and dating sites have seen a great
increase in popularity and are still growing more than ever. The downside to
this is that online scammers have taken the opportunity to use these sites
to target a much larger range of possible victims. These sites have given the
scammers virtually the opportunity to be anyone they want in any location
they choose. Anyone who has been in the online social or dating world for even
a short time has probably seen that a large majority of both the free and paying
social and dating sites are just flooded with scammers and the sites seem to do
very little, if anything to keep the scammers off.
Finding the real photo of the romance scammer is not what Pig Busters is all about
Pig Busters is not a policing or prosecuting agency, it is a scammer awareness site.
Pig Busters priority is to verify and post the reported email addresses
and pictures the scammers are currently using to contact others. If in the process of
researching and verifying the scammer, Pig Busters comes across the scammers real
picture it is added to the profile because knowing what the scammer looks like can help
in the healing process if you've been scammed.
However, Pig Busters does not have the investigative manpower to find every scammers
real picture. Besides using the picture to help you understand who really scammed you,
there is nothing that you can do with it, except maybe confront the scammer, which we
strongly do not recommend because they don't care. You may not be aware that all the
work related to verifying and posting the romance scammer is done by volunteers who
maintain full time jobs, so the priority must be focused on verifying and posting the
information submitted to Pig Busters. You cannot have him arrested if he is in Africa,
he will never be prosecuted or imprisoned for what he did or is doing, and you will
never recover money you sent him. Scamming is not really considered a crime in Nigeria.
What is important is your assistance in gathering and verifying information in order
to expedite reporting and getting the romance scammer posted to Pig Busters in order
for the information to be picked up by the search engines as soon as possible. This
will help tremendously to heighten scammer awareness for all the men and women
world-wide who are searching for the same email address and ultimately, save many
others from being scammed by heartless criminals.
