Our Story

Global Anti-Scam Organization was founded in June 2021 to support people around the world devastated by cybercrimes. The founder, a victim herself, created the site in gratitude to a Taiwanese support group who helped her back into the light.

 

As Shāzhūpán victims kept surging throughout 2021, the number of volunteers continued to grow as well, and the Global Anti-Scam Organization (GASO) was formed. Joined now by about 70 volunteers worldwide, GASO has been incorporated in USA as a non-profit to support, organize and advocate for Shāzhūpán victims. GASO as of April 2022 has connected with 1,483 victims worldwide, amounting to $256 million in losses --an average of $172,000 per victim.

What we do 

Prevention and Awareness

We guide people how to spot a scam, how to adjust if they find themselves in one, and how to report to authorities and gather evidence. In online investment scams today, there is an interactive “gamification” that simulates, and the user gets to go through it and try to not get scammed. The “aha” moment of this, is to show people how easy it is to be pulled in. And, therefore, educate them firsthand on what it feels like. Scam victims are often treated with no mercy, as the common belief is that it was their fault. This victim blaming stance completely ignores the fact that the victim is indeed a victim of a well-orchestrated crime.

Community and Support

We provide a safe place for victims to talk openly and freely. These community and support groups will take place both virtually, utilizing ZOOM groups, and in-person. The goal is to help victims get back to their normal lives before the incident and offer a safe space to pour their hearts out and provide relevant documents that are useful for their cases

We work with law enforcement around the world to bring human traffickers and cybercriminals to justice
