If the scammers are contacted, they will ask their potential victims to send their personal information, which they will keep and sell to other scammers. The scammers will then ask their potential victims to send money which the scammers will claim their potential victims must do in order to receive their cut of the money. But, once the money is sent, the scammers will disappear and move to other potential victims. Some may be brave enough to continue scamming the same victims.
