Viruses, in the form of "approved" or "certified" service providers, are also cleverly set up to offer scheme-specific services and training for the advancement of the certification enterprise.

I have found that when people are not held accountable for what they sell, they will attempt to sell anything to you, including virtual solutions for fabricated needs that you do not have in reality. The sellers only have to trick you with soothing words into believing some virtual realities that draw you into an enslaving loyalty to their exploitation. Many people have fallen prey and still fall for these tricks.
