Oh, you can get around it…

Case in point: a guy I knew in college; he's apparently a loser these days, despite having two advanced degrees from prestigious schools. He set up a Kickstarter so he could go gallivanting across the globe. But you'd get postcards in the mail for your investment. It was a sad joke, and it wasn't going to succeed as a Kickstarter project until the remaining 2/3 of funding magically appeared on the last day of the project (likely from himself or family).

But yeah, there will always be scams, and suckers who gladly spur them along.
