In the economy of today, people are getting desperate. The government lies about the unemployment numbers. I believe it is higher than what the government is saying for sure.
Some people have been out of work for quite some time, jobs are tough to get. The cost of living has not really gone down, well maybe if you are buying a house yes, going to the store to buy food, no.
Some people are desperate for money, and they turn to a scammer. Not willingly mind you. The slick adds will pull them in, they are not aware of how the scam works and how the law prohibits most of the activities they are about to get themselves involved in. Though due to lax enforcement by the people who should be stopping these scammers right away, the scam takes hold. The desperate person trusts the scammer, and soon that person has given money to the scammer.
Now that the scammer has a lot of money, guess what he has now?
Lawyers. These people will fight tooth and nail, and find every hole in the law to protect them, in the mean time the scam continues. Such is the battle with many MLM's and so on.
Why are these scams so difficult to stop? Well lawyers for one, but the main reason is the foolishness of some people to get involved with them in the first place.
I know some people who get caught up in these scams are not bad people at all, just desperate.
The people who take advantage of people in a bad point in their lives are disgusting(scammers).
Well thats my rant, I feel better now. Well sort of, but the scammers are out in full force. I don't feel good about that.
