SCAM PREVENTION NETWORK

Our Found­ing Prin­ci­ples

Stamp Out Scams, Inc., is a non­prof­it scam pre­ven­tion net­work of retired law enforce­ment.  Our orga­ni­za­tion is ful­ly com­mit­ted to rais­ing aware­ness and edu­cat­ing the pub­lic about scam pre­ven­tion. We are com­prised of a team of pas­sion­ate indi­vid­u­als who share a pro­found com­mit­ment to pro­tect the vul­ner­a­ble from finan­cial crimes and scams.

Our foun­da­tion has its roots in the exten­sive law enforce­ment expe­ri­ence of our founder, Nick Hen­ley. With 25 years of ded­i­cat­ed ser­vice as a spe­cial agent for the Unit­ed States Trea­sury Depart­ment, Nick spe­cial­ized in inves­ti­gat­ing finan­cial crimes. His career exposed him to the dev­as­tat­ing con­se­quences of scams on inno­cent lives, lead­ing him to ini­ti­ate a bat­tle against such crimes as a pri­vate cit­i­zen.

Nick­’s law enforce­ment career not only equipped him with a deep under­stand­ing of scams but also fos­tered a robust net­work of retired and for­mer law enforce­ment pro­fes­sion­als. These sea­soned experts, hav­ing per­son­al­ly wit­nessed the pain and suf­fer­ing that crime inflicts upon vic­tims, car­ry both a sense of empa­thy and a relent­less desire to fight against it.

A pri­ma­ry goal at Stamp Out Scams is not just to stem the tide of fraud­u­lent activ­i­ties but to anni­hi­late this scourge com­plete­ly.  This endeav­or might sound ambi­tious, per­haps even unre­al­is­tic, giv­en the depth and com­plex­i­ty of the chal­lenge.

But, as our founder likes to say, “it always seems impos­si­ble until it’s done.

So join us in our war against scam­mers.  Our law enforce­ment net­work is unique­ly qual­i­fied to take on this chal­lenge.  The time has def­i­nite­ly come for a world­wide con­cert­ed effort to STOP SCAMMERS!

Our Retired Law Enforce­ment Net­work

At Stamp Out Scams, Inc., we har­ness the invalu­able exper­tise of retired law enforce­ment per­son­nel, involv­ing them direct­ly in our scam pre­ven­tion ini­tia­tives. Their expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge are inte­gral to devel­op­ing effec­tive strate­gies to pre­empt scams and edu­cate the pub­lic. Their com­pas­sion fuels our efforts, rein­forc­ing our com­mit­ment to safe­guard the inno­cent from falling prey to such crimes.
But it’s not just about expe­ri­ence or knowl­edge; it’s also about the heart. Our orga­ni­za­tion is pop­u­lat­ed with indi­vid­u­als who are gen­uine­ly pas­sion­ate about pro­tect­ing vic­tims and pre­vent­ing scams. This pas­sion is the lifeblood of our orga­ni­za­tion, dri­ving our every endeav­or. From devel­op­ing edu­ca­tion­al resources to con­duct­ing pub­lic aware­ness cam­paigns, we are moti­vat­ed by the belief that every per­son deserves to be safe from finan­cial scams and the dev­as­ta­tion they bring.
Join us on this jour­ney to stamp out scams. We believe that with the right knowl­edge and tools, we can empow­er indi­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties to stand strong against finan­cial preda­tors. At Stamp Out Scams, Inc., we’re not just fight­ing crime; we’re build­ing safer futures.
Our scam pre­ven­tion net­work con­sists of pas­sion­ate for­mer pub­lic ser­vants.  How­ev­er, just because they have retired from law enforce­ment, does not mean their pas­sion for pub­lic ser­vice has dimin­ished.  In fact, in many instances, their pas­sion for ser­vice has grown because they’re not part of the fight-for-right on a day-to-day basis any­more.

We effec­tive­ly accom­plish this scam expo­sure through sev­er­al mod­ern meth­ods.  These meth­ods include through our scam infor­ma­tion feeds at the top of each of our site pages; our YouTube chan­nel named ScamTV, and through social media such as Insta­gram, Face­Book and Tik­Tok.
02
Why We Do It?
Explain­ing why we want to expose scams and scam­mers is easy.  There are an end­less amount of rea­sons why we do it.  First and fore­most, is because we have the expe­ri­ence and exper­tise to do it.  Along with this, comes an ingrained pas­sion to make our world a bet­ter place.
Doing noth­ing about scams and scam­mers when we have the back­ground and skills to com­bat them, serves no pur­pose.  It is our belief that it is incum­bent on all of us to con­tin­ue our pub­lic ser­vice mis­sion, long after our law enforce­ment careers our over.  The scam pre­ven­tion war seem­ing­ly nev­er ends, nei­ther will our mis­sion to stop it!

Fight­ing Scam­mers Using Expe­ri­ence!
At Stamp Out Scams, we use what we call our “ARMY” of expe­ri­enced, retired law enforce­ment per­son­nel.  Law enforce­ment is a brotherhood/sisterhood of pub­lic ser­vants.  This com­mit­ment to ser­vice does not end when these ser­vants retire.  In fact, in many instances their spir­it inten­si­fies dur­ing retire­ment.
So, at Stamp Out Scams, we uti­lize our own expe­ri­ence and pri­or pub­lic ser­vice, to reach out to retired law enforce­ment to join our army in fight­ing scams.  This law enforce­ment bond helps us com­prise our world­wide scam pre­ven­tion net­work.
