Because people want something for nothing and are willing to believe anyone who promises them they can get it. I have heard far too many people thrilled over the millions of dollars left to them in a Nigerian bank and it just takes a few dollars to get it out. Now, if they fall for this once, it's really foolish. If they continue to send more and more money for the same thing, they are pretty much dumb as rocks and easy pickings for the scammers. It's a very lucrative business, especially in poor, third world countries where it is considered a legitimate way to make money.

Because most people are ignorant and don't take the time to figure out if something is a scam or not. I usually look into something before I sign up for it.

I think they are taking advantage of a gullible public. They can be located anywhere get money and defraud people. I think it is really unfair, however that is just the way it is.

Because the Internet became a "gold mine" of opportunities. The Internet makes it possible for bad guys to devise schemes that fool people and take away their hard earned money while the scam artists hide behind their computers anonymously...

There are crooked people all over, those crooked people do not care who they have to trample on to get their easy money, they just want the dollar. So they are willing to scam people to get the easy dollar, and they could care less how it effects those they scam. How often do we hear about seniors who get scammed by some person who says they can do repairs around their home and they need X dollars up front, the trusting senior pays the upfront cash never to see that person again. It is sad, to think that someone would do that to seniors, but these scammers only think of themselves. Which is why folks always need to be very cautious and suspicious online when it comes to handing out their hard earned money. There used to be a time where folks could trust others, I do have to say I live in a good area where it still almost seems like Maybery from the Andy Griffith show, I actually lived in that town also just a few years back.. it is nice area also, people still wave to folks as they drive down the road.. I am only 30 min from ther now and where I live people wave to each other. I was born and raised in the San Fran Bay Area... I would never move back there, only thing I miss about California are some views and restaurants.
