Why do you give af? Can a mod delete this nonsense?

And to elaborate on your question, you can pull money out of ANYTHING. Believe it or not some people even make money with the get rich quick schemes. They put their own twist and run with it.

Everything in business can damn near be classified as a "get rich quick scheme". If you've noticed, none of it is actually "quick".

You try out businesses, you fail, and hopefully you find something that works throughout all your failing.

Thats business.

We can discuss the reasons so that other become aware and avoid this in future.
I edited my message to elaborate.

It's a stupid question, that no one cares about. People make mistakes. Move along.

Human beings (may be not all, but in my opinion around 50% to 70%) are prone to a lot of greed and that greed results in them going towards the scammy get rich quick types of schemes and then there is a saying "there is a sucker born every minute". That is why when it comes to investing any money anywhere, think, analyse, research.

Why does anyone fall for anything, really?

It's because they are promised something they don't yet have, but desire.

"Are you tired of writing content for 6 months, and wait at the mercy of Google to rank your articles? Just buy my Lady Gaga backlinks, I promise you they work."

Anyone old enough to remember that guy John Wu or Woo or whatever his name was?

He literally had his blog title "I make money online by telling people how much money I make online"

In 2009 he was allegedly making $50,000 a month from affiliate earnings.

Example are some people I know who recently invested in a scam coin because it promised very high returns. They are in online business from quite some time.
they didnt felt for that, how can u predict its scam coin. You could make huge profit buying some not very common coin. Its risk but you never know, for example dogecoin. It could be scam coin but it ended up making people 200x profit so the risk is worth it for most people that got experience and shit happens to everyone once per time

Very high chances of success with this attitude.
Lol says the guy asking questions like this......

Investing in shit coins has an actual strategy to it. Not a get rich quick scheme. You really need some more experience looking at methods here before you start posting bullshit man.

Experienced or not, the format is always the same:

- Misinformation / Lies
- Trust in authority / Reputation
- Desperation

Anyone can be misinformed or misled out of confidence.
I see shitlists of people scammed by users with aged accounts, because they trusted the reaction score/join date/VIP status
Also a lot of users post replies to thread made by a fresh account, seeking services advertised ridiculously cheap

A lot of this can be circumvented, when people SPEAK UP and inform users, because if you look at any recent shitlists, other users come forward and say "oh yeah he also scammed me back in August"
So yeah, the more seperated the board is, the more likely you will fall into one or more of the list (divide and conquer is an age old stategy for ruling nations btw :D )

It has no relation to what I asked.

There are many instances where members on this forum also got cheated by such schemes even when they were old members here. Shitlist section is full of this.

You probably only seeing people who are highly addicted to gambling. I know because that's basically it. High risk = high return

Now you're completely off topic. First you say scam coins, now you mention the shit list section. THe shit list section is full of shit bags who scam people with services. I'm sure there may be a select few who have scammed here with some crypto project.

Nonetheless, this has nothing to do with your OP.

AND you're speaking as if reputable members are immune to scams. It's a very ignorant POV.

1. I added a point so I cannot another point in second response. Very fair.
2. Members asked for examples and I give and now the examples have nothing to do with OP. Again very fair.
3. Reputable members are not immune to scams. And this is the point of this thread.

Yeah because there are no instances when they didnt got scammed, It create false ilusion that so many members got scammed. Its like product reviews, only few people that like the product will go and write positive review. But people that dislike product will almost certainly write negative review. You cant say many of them or not because you dont know the times they didnt get scammed you can only count shitlist threads but still the question is impossible to answer as every person is different.
Even experience is not everything, You can have same experience but person with higher IQ or Brain Power will use that experience to calculate better result to know if its scam or not by predicting many possible results that can happen based on their experience and knowledge.
