it really doesn't make sense to me, you only need to think for about 5 seconds to realize what the guy is trying to sell to you is a scam.
if they are too pushy its a scam, for example: BUY NOW! while its 75% off!!!
if they are telling you an easy money making plan: if you had a pot full of gold will you tell everyone where you hid it? guess the answer
if they are telling about a secret bank account over an email....
if they are telling you can buy very cheap auctioned stuff for only 1 penny...
if they are telling you about a secret herbal tea that will make you slim by drinking it every 3 days
if you found a lover over the Internet telling you he/she has financial problems and needs your help then its a scam
and the list goes on.
the point is if there is no profit or hardly any for the seller then its a scam, if its too good to be true its a scam, if it is too easy then its a scam.
i honestly don't understand how so many people fail to see these, and even if they are very hard to detect by a simple google search you can see countless posts about the scam.
in my opinion anyone who gets scammed deserves to be for being stupid.
