What is your take? Why is the government not doing more in Billions of US $$$ being scammed by foreign actors. With stories like this being more and more common the question lurks why are you not doing more?

I think it's more about the difficulty with Internationalized Crime.  In some poor counties Law Enforcement might turn a blind eye if the crime is not against their own populace.  Only with their and US Gov't pressure maybe results can be obtained. 

For example Robo Call Centers and Nigerian scams.
