Many people that scam today leverage on the bad name that has been created in the past.
The issue is, why are people so greedy to fall for scamers. If not greed, how can one esplain a sitaution where you are asked to help receive money that you never worked for with a promise of some percentages?
Scammers cannot succeed in geting you if you are not greedy.
I always tell people to be real and don't expect to reap where you did not sow and you will be fine.
