it's hard to feel any sympathy for those who would fall for such a stupid scam.

Normally, one would think "send me $1,000 and I'll send you $2,000" is too obvious a scam for anyone to fall for, but apparently, there were people who actually sent the scammers money.
In addition to anti-virus, anti-malware, etc., what is needed is an anti-stupidity scanner.

I've had a hoax happen to me years ago indirectly. Someone used my email, and others' emails, for a prize, a non existent Sony Ericsson laptop for 20 email addresses and for a lesser quantity of emails, a discontinued Sony Ericsson phone. It's a hoax and I honestly cannot understand how people can fall for it.

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
