The crooks don't care about negative feedback, or peoples' opinions.
Offer a cheaper price and people will avoid escrow systems.

Look at the scam artists on the Internet. How many people do you think
do repeat business with them?
None - but there are always new punters sending money in. So the huge
profits keep rolling in.
If eventually business winds down, start up a new company and carry on.

You don't even have to offer a product. Just offer hope of a cure, or
a hope of receiving more money back, or a hope of good luck in the
future, or............

If you can get the government in your pocket, like the banksters, then
just pay a fine occasionally  and carry on ripping people off.

To stop scams and white-collar crime you need a legal system of
justice, law enforcement, jail time and requisition of ill-gotten
The US used to have that. They should consider trying it again sometime.
