^^ Actually sometimes they do
I once entered an art con who did not announce the winners for like a week after the due date but BJDware was kind enough to give everyone who entered 5k and warned the player who hosted that art con for delaying
U is right. While a 800$ loss can and will most likely count as one of the biggest losses in recent cubic history, a 20$ one is not really that big. Plus, think about it: You can work to earn 50k and cover the losses of a scam. It is possible. But can you work and earn 3, 4 or even 5 millions? It will take time. A long time. That's why even in real life the police usually dedicates more time on the cases that include bigger losses, depending on their criterrias.
