It would be an incorrect statement to say that cheaters to not pay money. They probably pay as much money as anyone else, but since they cheat their income might be higher than average individuals depening on the certain "field of cheating".
Just some curious speculations...

Yes, cheaters often do pay money but usually because they are greedy and they expect to get more back.  This is how cheaters get "stung" by taking advantage of their greed.

Hi  noam_dz,

The following is from an interview by Court TV with the executive producer of the TV program "Cheaters"; scroll about half way down the page: http://www.courttv.com/talk/chat_transcripts/2001/0309cheaters.html

Question: "Will the people be paid if they go on the show?"

Bobby Goldstein: "No, our complainants are paid only the consideration of the investigation. The suspect and the third party are later on offered a release to sign, and I will be candid and say sometimes it does involve a consideration."


Consideration means a payment, so yes, they do get paid, although later in the interview Mr. Goldstein suggests that sometimes people appear without being compensated.

Hi Day Dreams.

Good answer.

Any way to know how much consideration is offered to the suspect and the third party ?

Just out of curiosity, not that I'm planing to be one.

I can't find anything about the actual amounts. When Mr. Goldstein says that he'll be "candid", and merely admits that "..sometimes it does involve a consideration", I would imagine that the amount is confidential.
