To fail, all a person has to do is to surround himself with lying incompetent degenerates. For an example, the kind who posts pictures of themself at an orgy for their “husband”.
Rather than trying blame the failure of a con on people like me and ANOTHER ONE, maybe the failure should be blamed squarely on the people perpetrating and orchestrating the scam.
It takes enormous intelligence and talent to perpetrate a scam long term. It’s not that hard to lie and get away with a dishonest racket for a couple of years.
Most people are just too kind hearted to assume that they’re being lied to by psychopaths.
