I think the people who get suckered into these situations don't do hardly any research, and they join forums because they are genuinely excited about what they do. Then they begin to hear things and get very offended. It is normal for people to defend any belief they hold, because no one wants to have to admit that they have been wrong or tricked. It makes people feel stupid or gullable. I think in the cases such as this it is necessary to point out to those individuals that it is not their fault they have been tricked. These frauds are professional conmen who have spent years learning how to prey on the minds of people. It only becomes their fault once they realize that they are wrong and continue to act as if they are right.
