Not to mention if his sister lives in, say Mexico
City and you and in Perth, what good will that do you anyway????? (Although that may depend on the quality of her webcam and the size of your monitor....)
And, its not just the fish you are (mistakenly) trying to "help" that makes this a simply wrong thing to do, but more importantly, it show the good players at the table where your head is at. It will make you look like easy money to them and put you on their list of "green" players, or whatever color they assign to weak and bad players that they want to target.
