Pyramid by Paypal.

The imagination of con artists knows no bounds. Today I received a spam e-mail with a link to this site. Its a variation on the classic pyramid scheme, only instead of sending money by mail you send it through Paypal accounts. It won't take too many fish to bite this hook for the original scammer to receive a lot of money. As with all pyramid schemes at some point they'll run out of suckers, and the last folks in will likely see zip in return. Of course if Paypal catches on quickly enough he'll probably never see most of the money. I suppose I should have forwarded the e-mail to Paypal, but its safe to bet that this one has already been reported by multiple folks.
