Sharon Armstrong (Ngati Kahungunu) is a justice worker, author and public speaker. She has shared her experience of romance fraud in her book ‘Organised Deception’, launched in March 2018, to highlight the many issues that victims of fraud face.
She advocates for victims/survivors and their families who have been exploited in some way by scammers and is working to get legislative change made in Aotearoa to protect victims of this type of fraud.
By using her experience as an example for others, she hopes to show that anyone can overcome adversity. We just need time to rise above it and grow from the experience.
