There are two reasons not to feel sorry for people who fall for these types of scams:
1) They are retarded
2) This activity of money laundering is clearly illegal. If some guy hired you to help rob a bank and then get stiffed you when the job is over, you aren't going to be getting any sympathy from the popo.
