I have been interested in this idea for awhile, since I am going to one day go out in the real world and try to get a job. I am thinking about things where you can earn really good money, but it has to be something that would interest me. So I am thinking about cops and robbers on the web, cyber security. I have been looking at this thing that purports to generate paypal money, apparently from thin air. It is claimed that you can magically get up to a thousand dollars. That seems really odd to me, since you would think that the criminal mastermind who could do this might keep it a secret. Obviously that would make it tough to combat them. In this case I am pretty sure that Paypal is going to get hold of this code and figure out how to do something to stop it in a very short time. I am also thinking that the upside is not going to be that great.
For example if you get caught it is definitely going to cost you a whole lot more than you earn if you have to go to court. The chance of someone like me going to jail is going to be really small. It is not so easy for you to get out of this sort of thing without going to court. A lawyer is going to be really expensive, so it is going to be really tough. Of course if you are in cyber security, then you are going to be going up against a lot of people who are going to be in countries that do not want to cooperate with you. North Korea for example has decided to use cyber thieves to rob banks, and no one can go get them for it.
