The pillage of the scammed

How many people still fall for these scams every year. You would think as the scam goes on, demanding ever more money without revealing anything useful that the scammed would become suspicious and pull out or investigate in some way.

Or is it that they are too embarrassed to admit they may have been gullible and continue in the hope their suspicion is wrong?

The scum who run these things shouldn't be able to get away with it so lightly, I can imagine they have destroyed lives, settling like this is too easy for them.
