If you're running a scam, you want to make sure your pricing is such that people won't suspect it's a scam.
This can mean making the cost low enough that people's suspicions aren't raised in the first place. Or it can mean making the cost ludicrously high that people's suspicions are raised, but they then conclude that no scam would be so blatant as to require such a ridiculously high buy-in cost, so therefore it must be real.
Or it can mean making the cost roughly in line with expectations of what it would be if the product or service offered was real.
