Over the last several weeks I’ve been receiving a barrage of very small donations from a single person. They range in size from $0.01 USD to $0.05 USD, and the PayPal transaction fee results in a net of $0.00 for me. It’s obviously very suspicious, and my bet is that this individual is trying to artificially inflate their PayPal or eBay reputation. What better way to get a very high reputation than to have a lot of successful payments? Or, maybe they’re trying to inflate my reputation? I don’t get it.

Has anyone else seen similar activity?
