This is the conclusion reached by the Freakonomics team and published in "Think Like A Freak" and other works thereof. It makes sense. Your average scammer doesn't want to be bothered with anybody who has the nous to spot the danger at some point. That's just wasted time and effort for no reward. So they're more than happy for the likes of us to dismiss their mail as spam/scam and maybe have a giggle at the ineptitude before binning it. It's zero loss after all (they don't even have to pay for postage any more). Their only interest is in those who can be fooled.
