The perfect mark for a con artist is the person who wants to believe. There are many individuals who want to believe there is a simple cure for baldness. In their desperation to find that cure they ignore many of the warning signs in a scam. A con artist capitalizes on any opportunity and with the majority of the world's population experiencing androgenetic alopecia, fraudsters see a major chance to make money.

Regardless of how you feel about your hair, be wary of anyone selling you a product that will "solve all your problems". Do as you do when you make any purchase of significance and ask lots of questions about the product and the claims being made for it. Demand to be convinced and do not simply accept claims at face value.
