Donations to StopSIMCrime are used to raise awareness by supporting this website, travel to present at events, help victims recover their money, and stop carriers from giving our service to criminals.
A portion of your donation may be used to provide funding for lawsuits against the carriers and criminals. Because the carriers’ Terms of Service do not allow for legal class actions, each victim must take action individually, which may benefit victim individual. For that reason, we are not able to get tax-exempt status. To be clear, your donation is not tax deductible. However, our intention is that our collective efforts through your support will compel the carriers to fix the problem.
