Angel.. you scammer... shame on you

So here we go again on  the rollercoaster ride of trying to get funding... Would you believe if I tell you that after all the warnings and dire reports, there are still a lot of apparent entrepreneurs asking for upfront fees?
In the three weeks I have done intensive searching, I have had offers from such a lot of people all asking for upfront fees...
I look at my business plan, on which I have spend hours and hours and I wonder.. is there anything in there to make people think that I am not serious about it? What could I have written in this document to make them think I am stupid enough to pay anything from $7000,00 to $ 20 000,00 before I even have a form from them?
Do they think sending a letter with big money written somewhere in it, will be enough to entice me to fork out money?
Beware!! since I had started  my business years ago ( and first encountered one of them) ... they have also developed into a very well oiled business.
The papers and the letters are so much more "professional".  They obviously have also  developed their business and streamlined it. However no matter how well developed they are, all they are and will ever be are scammers. Stealing your money... if you are gullible enough to pay them... Sad to say that  one can almost get so desperate that on will fall for anything, just in the hope of getting your plans on the way.
Do not fall for them... persevere.. You have to believe as I do that there is still good and honest people out there...
I hope so...
