Can a business view my personal information publicly?
Any personal information (email address, phone number, address) you provide Scambook upon sign up is kept completely private. Businesses will never have access to this information and it will only be used when a Scambook team member needs to contact you with any updates and progress made to your complaint.
How do I contact the company that has taken money out of my account?
If you have already submitted a complaint on Scambook.com, an Investigator will be researching the business shortly. A company profile will be created with any contact information that you are able to provide, along with all other information obtained by the Scambook Investigators working on your complaint. You are able to find all of this information through your dashboard.
Is it ok to respond to businesses directly?
There is no way for Scambook to guarantee that the person contacting you is the official business. Scambook offers a platform for businesses to contact you, where we are able to facilitate your resolution process. If you have received any Official Response from the business through Scambook Resolution, a notification will show up on your dashboard.
If you are unsure of what you should do, you are able to contact our Business Department to confirm that the business is currently working with Scambook to resolve your complaint and we will let you know what your next steps should be.

Can Scambook help me take legal action against the business that scammed me?
Just to be clear, Scambook's primary purpose is to serve as a complaint resolution platform where consumers are able to post complaints against various fraudulent companies.
Although we may potentially be able to find Scambook users resolutions using our resolution platform, we are unable to give legal advice, we do not connect them with attorneys, and cannot promise that everyone will get their money back.
How long do I wait for a refund after I submit my complaint?
The outcome largely depends on the response time and cooperation of the business you have submitted a complaint against. Scambook Investigators are working hard to research and follow up on every single complaint submitted by our users. They are constantly reaching out to hundreds of businesses daily in efforts to find Scambook users resolutions.
Although we may potentially be able to assist Scambook users in finding resolution, we are unable to promise that everyone will get their money back.
Will every complaint I submit be resolved?
The success rate of complaint resolutions vary from case to case, however, we are contacting the business constantly in attempts to resolve your complaint and will be updating you as soon as there is any progress.
