Contact information for the company is listed.
Scamwatcher is a community site that allows people to report and learn about scams. More than a million users use it every month.
Scam reports and comments are put online by users without any moderation being carried out (same principle as on social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…).
Every day, hundreds of reports and comments are written. The Scamwatcher team does not control the information posted online and has no knowledge of the content.
Therefore, any imprecise request that suggests the team has knowledge of content will be ignored.
Are you a witness or victim of a scam? Share your testimony online through this link: Reporting form
After filling in the form, an email is sent to the author to click on a validation link. This action allows the report to be put online.
It is not necessary to have an account to file an alert, just an email address. Sometimes, after an alert has been posted online, people want to modify or delete it (typing error,…).
In this case, nothing could be easier! You just have to create an account with the same email address as the one used to put the alert online. Then, after registration and connection, new features will be visible on the alert in question.
More information here: Modifying your report
In the same way as for modifying or deleting a comment, you just have to create an account with the same email address that was given when you posted your comment.
Then, after registration and connection, new features will be visible on the comment in question (red cross to delete, green pencil to modify).
The Internet users are responsible for their writings.
As indicated previously, there is no moderation a priori of the contents put on line. If illicit content is observed, you must contact the author through the comments to ask for its removal or modification.
If nothing is done after a reasonable time, you can contact the Scamwatcher team by requesting a removal of content by indicating :
=== Content has been removed from Scamwatcher, yet it still appears in search engines (including Google). How do I remove it?
By following the directions provided here: Deletion guide
