    So there's this guy on Instagram who claims he can flip the money you send him on Paypal. You give him $10 and he supposedly gives you $100 in a day or two. He has a lot of so called testimonials on his account from people who "received" the flipped money.
    I was just wondering really, who would fall for this? How can you believe stuff like this?
    Has anyone seen his account? Did he fool you or friends of yours?
    I'm not going to disclose his ids (yeah he has multiple accounts, very "legit") but please share your opinion.

    Simple psychology. He's playing out the greed-card in people. Whoever is greedy and dumb enough to fall for this doesn't deserve better.

    The reason people do it is because there are people that will fall for it.

    It's a shame really.

    No no, I'm gonna keep this goodie to myself :)

    Well I'm sorry but I think this is a good warning for people who might think of giving it a try.

    Haha one guy basically told me how he worked with this and scammed people.

    He really take 10$ from 40 people, and he send them 100$ back, and after this they basically beg him to invest more, so next time he contact them with some huge oportunity and all they need is invest 500$, 10 out of those 40 will invest so easy 5000$.

    Reminds me of the stock prediction scammers.

    Simplified version:

    A guy emails 512 people, telling half a stock will go up, and the other half it will go down. Assume it's 50% each way.

    The 50% he gets correct he will do the same the following day. The 50% he guesses incorrectly he will ignore.

    Repeat this process, and after eight iterations there are four people he has emailed spot on stock predictions to eight days in a row. He then approaches them to invest with him.
