Why some victims don't immediately grasp their criminal involvement.

Nigerian Scam Letters are fraught with pleas for sympathy.  They state that if the funds are not quickly transferred out of their country, the money will be used to buy arms for war and destruction.  Sometimes the money is alleged to belong to widows and orphans left to the mercy of government and police persecution.  Every ploy is used to make the letter recipient overlook the obvious and feel a deep, abiding pity for the stated situation.  The victim sees himself as a hero.

Of course, there are those victims who are motivated entirely by greed and to hell with the authorities.  As with all those of underhanded and dishonorable mentality, they figure they won't get caught.  These are hoisted by their own petard.  Unfortunately, they often drag in money from friends and relatives in the process.

Then there are the financially desperate.  They have a blind eye when it comes to consequences.

However, the sad truth is that the vast majority of the world's population lives in complete ignorance of International Law and International Banking and its Banking Laws.  

Ignorance may not be an excuse, but it's a fact of life that 419'ers count on.

BUT, what about the proposals that come in under the guise of an honest business deal?  Aye, there's the rub.  There are many of those floating about as well.
