Speaking Events

jpeg-Speaking-HeadshotDiana’s keynote provides critical information to keep those people safe who are online dating.

This is an informative and captivating presentation. Your audience will learn identifiable Red Flags and the inner workings of the romance scam told by scammers themselves. They can use this first-hand insight and information to help their family and friends.

Diana L. Garren was a victim of the romance scam, and she quickly realized that lack of education is the fuel that keeps this criminal fire burning out of control. Using her personal experience as a springboard, Diana dedicated two and a half years of her life gathering as much intelligence as possible to write two books, “Who Is the Real Man Behind the Screen?” and “Is it a Real Soldier Behind the Screen?”

Diana draws heavily from her chats with twenty-six scammers, three of whom revealed their real identities and became her inside sources and three men that confirmed this information. They taught her the inner workings of the romance scam and helped her navigate safely through her research.

To ensure the validity and reliability of her research, Diana took three distinct measures:

  • She did not reveal to anyone that she was working with multiple sources
  • She checked the information she received from each against the others
  • She spoke with several independent Nigerian sources who verified the information given her by the scammers

Further, when she needed investigative advice, Diana reached out to her certified fraud investigator clients.

Book Diana and she will provide a compelling behind-the-scenes trip into the workings of the scamming world for your audience. It will truly educate them!
