Sorry, this isn't a technical problem, but I wanted to report this quickly. There is a hubber who posted a question that is soliciting money in the forums to be paid to his/her paypal account.
I flagged it but wanted to bring attention to it quickly, so it could be pulled before anyone gets scammed. It may not be a scam, but I still think it violates hubpages policy.
I apologize if this is not the appropriate way to address this.
Here is the link to the question below:

Agreed - you should absolutely not send this guy money - instead send it to me and I'll put it in an Escrow account until HP decide what to do with it!
Seriously though - well spotted and reported!
Of course it's a scam, it's one of the oldest in the book. Before there was an Internet, my old job used to get variations on that exact same dodge via fax machine (!). Prior to that, it was probably sent around as a chain letter.
...I doubt anybody would've fallen for it, but then again anyone dumb enough to send that person money deserved to be ripped off.
That one is easy to flag but there have been some post on here wanting money to buy a home and for money for a child. The way they're done hard to know if they should be flagged.
You did the right thing.

Currently PayPal is the only payment method available for the HubPages Ad Program. In most countries, PayPal can only be used to send money. Funds in the PayPal account cannot be withdrawn by the PayPal account holders...
