Like most investigative teams, we allocate resources according to priority.
When the lives of animals are at stake, we work to ensure that the details are accurate and that steps are taken to ensure that the abuse or, worse — loss of life — is curtailed as soon as possible.
This is why the world depends on reporters.
It’s important to realize that most people, if they have made a mistake and are given an opportunity to correct it, will at least attempt to do so — especially if they’re reasonably intelligent and recognize that the chances of their getting exposed and prosecuted are beginning to mount.
It is only the most egregious offenders that will continue to toe this mark even in the face of significant adversity, often attempting to deflect attention from themselves by accusing everyone around them, piling lies on top of mounds of disinformation, misinformation and untruths — hoping to bury themselves [and their actions] in the process.
They do, ultimately, bury themselves, of course — but usually not in the way they might’ve hoped.
This is how one’s activities can devolve into ‘criminal activities’ and then, finally, ‘multiple crimes’ — they don’t stop. Then, in an effort to conceal their actions they engage in further criminal activity.
It is most often these actions and activities that, ultimately and finally, bring them down. This is where both media and prosecutors come together to serve the greater good. It is also the way they learn about scams operating in their respective jurisdictions.
It is these people — those seemingly without conscience — that must be stopped if, for no other reason than that they lack the ability to stop themselves.
If you are aware of scammers involving equines and/or equine rescue — operating outside the boundaries of law — we would like to hear from you.
We go to great lengths to protect your identity and work closely with investigators to see that information is not shared nor revealed.
If you have watched others being victimized whether they be human or animal by such scammers, we want to know.
Provide a synopsis of your concerns along with your substantiating documentation [if you have questions about proper documentation please do reach out to us for details] and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our toll-free hotline at (888) 723-8083.
“Our database of researchable rescues and rescuers can provide the information necessary to help you make conscientious decisions without fear of providing funds to the ‘unethical’ in the rescue world.” — Equine Crusaders
