I think it's very likely that there are scam artists, and would-be scam artists, both reading this board and even posting on it as well.

There are a few reasons that come to mind for why someone would do this:

- Test out new lines to see how easily they're seen through
- Hone debating skills
- See what scams are common, so as to be sure to avoid those

I could also see a supremely confident scam artist sending his victims here, as long as they already believe the scam. Seeing people criticize something you hold dear is a great way to make you believe in it even more strongly.
