Season 3, Episode 6: Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and Elina Juusola

Beware and Be Aware – YES, folks, everyone can be taken by someone online (and in person.) And those “mis-steps” without additional judgment/victim blame/victim shame can lead to an international awareness of how criminals are ripping out hearts while laughing their way to the bank.

Elina tells her story, not only from a victim/survivor/thriver/advocate position, but also as a researcher. Her book. Love On The Line, How to Recover from Romance Scams Gracefully and without Victimization is a remarkable ride through a recovery process from a trauma of romance scams with positive attitude, vigilance and feminist flair. This episode of Stand Up & Speak Up is for anyone who has been on the receiving end of a SCAM or financial FRAUD. This episode is NOT for anyone wanting to SHAME victims. It takes courage to turn your pain into your passion and then go out and start a global movement in order to support others.

Debby is on the Board of Directors of the Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) and Elina is one of our international Advisors. Together they are Standing Up and Speak Up for SURVIVORS and their families. Remember, we hope you’ll never be a victim to online fraud, but it could happen to your mother, father, son, daughter or best friend.
