New Variation on a classic scam - David Rhodes

Once upon a Time - you'd get the occasional piece of mail purportedly from David Rhodes. It was a classic pyramid scheme - send money in the post to some people and get money in return later.

And the new updated version is a PayPal scam.

Can I pay you *$39 by paypal ?

Have you ever wondered, what if at least 1000 registered
users of paypal purchases the outstanding "The Fortune"
gallery from you for *$39 each ?

It goes on with details and a URL but I won't trouble you with that. The main thing is that it's just a classic pyramid scheme - you'd be sending x people $39 hoping the lots more than x people send you $39 in return.
