Re: I wonder why

Going after a single large player would bring a lot of heat.

Going after many thousands of lesser targets is too complicated and convoluted to get a quickly investigated or flies under the radar so it's largely ignored.

Same reasons phishing attacks purposely want those with a brain to ignore and delete and ripe targets to click the link, those who are caught out are so embarrassed they won't own up to it or too clueless to notice until it's all gone.
