Jobs are in short supply in there area, however there is no excuse for conning young men, women and the elderly out of their money.
I’ve kept in touch with a scammer that I called in the past, he now works at his dad’s auto repair shop and said he hated every moment of working there. If you’re staying in a company you hate and breaking the law, you should expect the flak you get.
Hopefully more options will become available to them but don’t expect them all to be pleasant and misunderstood, some of them enjoy it. A true scambaiters job is to make them hate it, so much that they actively seek something else. But stopping them is not your choice, it’s theirs.
TLDR - You can’t, they will stop themselves.
