Pillock

In May I bought some kit from a guy who sells electrical components on eBay - in fact I'm pretty sure it's his main income. Yesterday he sent me an email suggesting that as a "fellow paypal user" I might like to sign on to his pyramid scheme, which will eventually make everyone huge amounts of money. For some reason I decided that a better idea might be to forward it to PayPal, since they have some rules about spamming, fraud, etc. I've only had an automated reply so far, but I live in hope that they'll be dropping on him from a great height.

I suppose I should feel guilty for (possibly) depriving him of his income, but I don't. If PayPal do drop him he'll at least have to go to the trouble of opening another account, and that ought to teach him some sort of lesson. Or am I being too harsh?
