Have you had a negative experience with online scams or been conned on social media? Then we want to hear from you.
We are collecting a storybank of experiences from people that have had negative experiences with online scams, so that we can turn collective voice into action. Maybe you were conned about a fake job, bought a bogus health product, or saw ads about miracle cures that could be harmful. Don’t worry. It happens to the best of us, but we can do something about it.
By sharing your experiences, you shed light on the impact of false information and scams so that we can hold online platforms accountable and stop the scams.
Fumbua and partners have released a groundbreaking investigation on the yoni pearl scam on social media that is impacting Kenyans. This is the tip of the iceberg and there are more misleading claims, harmful products, conns and scams that the social media platforms are allowing to thrive.
Through our story bank and our commitment to privacy, we can advocate for a safer online experience and ensure social media companies adhere to their own rules and stop the scams.
