Android ransomware poses as FBI smut warning

So, since PayPal happily processes these ransom payments, aren't they liable for participation in this criminal activity? Can't their database help track down the original perpetrators? Can't PayPal freeze these accounts and at least trap whatever balance they may contain and keep it out of the perp's hands?

It sure doesn't make things any easier when such large entities enable activity like this.
