That is exactly why they do it... Money.
PT Barnum had a saying: "There is a sucker born every minute"
Now where there is a sucker, there is money to be made... Fortunately for people such as the ones you talk about, the world is full of suckers...
People like this have always existed, pulling one scam or another, simply because they can and are to lazy to earn a legitimate days pay.
I have even been tricked before. I remember as a child of about 6 or 7 I was at the state fair of texas. There was an attraction. I could see the
world's smallest horse. For only $5.00.
Looking up the steps you see no horse only a bunch of those little hay stacks pushed together to make a cage.... I figured it must be really small and
paid my money to go see it..
What I did not realize is that there was more than meets the eye. You walk up these steps into this gazeebo like thing. The floor of the gazeebo is
about 5- 6 ft off the ground... The horse is actually standing in a hole in the middle of the gazeebo...
I did not realize that there was room for a 5-6 ft tall horse in there! I saw the hay stacks and figured it couldn't be more than a couple feet
tall!. I was tricked out of my money... I paid to go see a normal run of the mill horse...
The Moral of the story is, there is a sucker born every minute and as long as a sucker is exists a con artist will exist too...
