Scam Adviser – 69% of Scam Victims Make No Effort to Recover Their Money

Scam Adviser surveyed 2,575 consumers from across the world asking them about their experience with trying to get their money back from scammers. Not only did most victims (69%) not attempt to recover their funds, but 66% of the victims who tried to recover their money failed to get it back. The main reason cited for not attempting to get a refund is that the victim did not know how to get their money back (53.7%). A considerable portion also said that they did not try to recover the money as they did not think they would get it back even after trying (31.5%). Download the entire report titled Do Scam Victims Get Their Money Back?’ here.
