There is always some kid who doesn't get the joke, who falls for the scam, who remains innocent. The Fall Guy becomes a trusting adult, but is the target for every get rich-quick scheme around. There are no special careers for the Fall Guy, but he too often gravitates to scams that harm his savings account.
