Scammers are always on the lookout for people to fleece. If they think they can make a buck off someone, they will try, no matter how desperate and broke that person might be.
Scams still abound, scammers still hustle their scams, and there still aren’t enough real scam-busters to go around.
Why do scammers exist, in the first place? Why aren’t they extinct already?
The answer is, because it’s just so darn easy and lucrative for people with no conscience to scam those who aren’t paying attention. It’s so darn easy, because it’s so easy to find the people who aren’t paying attention.
There are those who genuinely do their own due diligence, and want to see the real scammers driven from the internet (and the planet!!)
There are those who want someone else to do the work of due diligence for them, because they don’t really know how to do it, or they are unsure of their own abilities and cannot afford to get scammed.
