During several years school life, students have been surrounded by kindness and care. As a result, most of them lack the sense of self-protection. Besides, there is a shortage of safety curriculums since teachers and parents think that ability would be improved abreast with students' age.

Some university students strive for money and power which bring them both social recognition and self-recognition. They shoulder  expectations of society and family, so to some extent the university students are blinded by their desire for success whose symbol is money and power, and  the swindlers just take advantage of their wants.

Instead of offering classes for self-protection, the university at which I used to study puts up large posters at many eye-catching places like every canteen gate and dormitory, to remind students of the most common and latest cases of scams. If they stop and take a look at them, they are less likely to be the next victims.

I suspect they are targeted because they are at an age where they think that the world is still wonderful and that they know enough to avoid being scammed.  

Sadly they are easy targets for the get rich scammers, especially Ponzi and pyramid scheme promoters whose schemes promise massive financial gains for all.  There's other reasons including greed, or being hungry for success, the suspension of reality and hard sell using enthusiastic crowds to pressure new "investors" and often made up rituals when someone is suckered in to the scheme.

If it sounds too good to be true, then it's likely going to fleece you of everything.
