In all seriousness - that is quite possible. A hacker friend of mine

I guess the cost of running the VPN service is far outweighed by the
amount of info you get to sniff.

A similar trick worked for wikileaks early on, according to some
rumours. (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06/02/wikileaks_tor_snooping_denial/)
