Ibn Mubarak was once asked who the riff raff are. His mind went directly to the corrupt scholars!
He said, 'the riff raff are the scholars who sell their religion, their devotional act and their knowledge for a worldly benefit.'
The majority of the scholars these days are just like that!
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, what I fear for my people is the hypocrite, the one who speaks wisely yet acts unjustly!
