Re: [SCAM] This is getting to be too much...

As near as I can tell, this "upgrade" fellow is claiming to spend a lot
of time tracking pyramid schemes. He can tell when a really good
pyramid scheme is starting, get in on the ground floor, and be one of
the people who gets paid off before the collapse occurs. The
possibility that people are making a living this way intrigues me.
Clearly what the ecosystem needs is a hyper-hyper-hyperparasite who
would scam *them*.

(Of course, now that he's contacting others, the pyramid scheme must be
approaching the collapse stage.)
