41. exactly!

that's the key to cults and con jobs of all kinds. Believers don't want to confront their gullibility and vulnerability to scams. They'd rather flagellate themselves. I found myself once at a promotional event - it was clear to me within a matter of minutes that the promoters were crooks pushing some pyramid scheme. On my way out the door, I saw a man in his 50s actually sobbing and pleading over the phone with his credit card company to honor a $25,000 payment that he wanted to make to this same band of con men. Hopefully he figured out sooner rather than later that the credit card company was doing him a favor.
