What a load of rubbish.  This scammer clearly likes writing fiction – perhaps he or she should put their skills to better use as an author or article writer.  If you actually look at the press release quoted in the link it has NOTHING to do with compensating victims of scams.

The scammer here is the author of this rubbish – whose only interest in money is his interest in your money, which he is hoping to take from you by charging you fees.  Ignore him.
