Our Story

Global Anti-Scam Organization (GASO) was created in June 2021, to support people around the world devastated by romance-investment scams. Joining forces with other volunteer anti-scam groups, GASO now has about 50 core members from around the world. Altogether to date, GASO advocates thousands of victims of online romance-investment scams amounting to more than 70 million USD in losses as of September 2021. Almost all volunteers are also victims of this romance-investment scam and are fueled by their desire to help others like them.​

Mission and Vision

Support. Recovery. Justice

First and foremost, Global Anti-Scam Organization (GASO) endeavors to support those whose lives were transformed by romance-investment cyber crimes, also known as “pig-butchering plate" (杀猪盘) in Chinese.

 

Secondly, GASO seeks to educate users of dating apps and social media on the latest social engineering techniques and technology abuses of Chinese cybercriminals, thereby ending the profitability of operating large-scale, multi-layered online scams.

 

GASO also aims to enlighten decision-makers, regulators, law enforcement and the public on the sophistication and seriousness of these most insidious online scams yet of this decade.


Finally, GASO advocates for real accountability and responsibility from all providers of today's digital services, which made possible their exploitation by criminal actors.

The GASO website aims to be a critical resource for those who want to learn more about the underpinnings of these romance-investment scams run by Chinese syndicates in Southeast Asia. What makes GASO unique is its online live chat: manned 24/7 by a passionate team of 12 volunteers. These individuals selflessly offer emotional support to victims who have recently discovered that they have fallen for a scam, as well as pointers going forward in reporting their losses and experience to law enforcement, disputing charges with their banks, and helping to link and organize victims. In dozens instances already, the direct intervention of the live chat has saved would-be victims from remitting hundreds of thousands of dollars to fraudulent investment platforms.
