No matter what good you try to do in this world, there will always be those against you
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Frustration Almost anyone who has been a Scam Buster long enough
will tell you that scammers are not the only obstacle they face. What's more frustating than
dealing with scammers is trying to warn others on the sites and suddenly your account is
deleted but not the scammer. Sometimes it seems like it's ok with some sites to warn others
but warning too many brings an awareness that the site has a big scammer problem and that
can give the site a bad reputation. The end result is almost always to delete the one member
warning others instead of reducing those high member numbers and traffic by getting rid of
The Reward Anyone that has been on the larger social network or dating sites long
enough has seen the many volunteers who actively seek out scammers and try to warn others.
These volunteers, often called Scam Busters, devote much of their time
to what is sometimes a very thankless task but the reward of knowing someone might have
been saved from a severe financial loss or emotional devastation is well worth the time and
effort they put into it.
