Default Pyramid Scam in Sig?

Just noticed what appears to be a pyramid scam in a user's sig. Thoughts?

Yeah, it's one of those "complete some offers" type deal and get your "free gift". Kind of like that damn commercial they show on G4TV for a free Xbox360, that drives me nuts!

Yup. There are even a few that had been posting often. Last one I remember was that one pretending to be a 16 y/o Gamer Girl. She/he/it too had links to free iPods etc on the profile and sig.
