Welcome to Victims Against Scams

Are you depending on the owners of a program too much? Do you think the program is legit, but unsure? Take our Legitimacy Test and find out! Then view a Flash Presentation we prepared that arms you with the information to protect yourself from scams and perpetuators of them. We can't guarantee the legitimacy of any program, but the formula seems to be fairly accurate based on past experience and the majority of laws we've been able to look into. Try to remember - we aren't attorneys, and the laws change all the time.
