Season 3 episode 8: This is a special edition of Stand Up & Speak Up with Debby Montgomery Johnson and Dr. Tim McGuinness, Directors of SCARS, guest host. This episode features two international SURVIVORS and we thank them.

Nothing has more impact than a SURVIVOR’s story, especially a story of financial fraud. It’s difficult to tell the world about something that has happened TO you, especially something that many people ridicule or victim blame.

Standing Up and Speaking Up is an important step to recovery, financial and emotional and No One needs to feel ashamed – we have been a victim to a crime and it’s time to move on with support. The Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams (SCARS) is an international nonprofit organization based in Miami, FL and supports victims/survivors/thrivers and their families from around the globe. We offer a safe place and an array of education, information and personal support. We encourage you to listen to this important show so you can understand a little better what happens when someone says “Yes” to a friend request on FB, or any social media platform, including gaming sites. Learn the psychology of the scam – the grooming, the deception and the manipulation that takes place. Remember, it could be your mother, sister, father, brother, child or best friend who is might be “next” or is already a victim but too afraid or ashamed to Speak Up. For more information about SCARS, Debby Montgomery Johnson is a Victims Advocate and can be seen at
