Mensagem:  Paulo, to me your example is not typical and somewhat off the mark. What you are describing is a 'dope', a 'dumb-ass', a 'loudmouth'. He isn't intending to get robbed, he's just a dolt. 

The 'willing victim' is offering themselves up intentionally, like the woman who returns again and again to the wife-beater, or some of Thomas' metaphorical examples.
