Tracking payments sent to scammers, and what they do with the money

3

I am interested in tracking payments sent to known scammers, and tracing where that money goes.

Is there any website that compiles this information and shares it with others?

There was a project that seems to no longer be active called BlockViewer.

The problem, of course, is Bitcoin's pseudonymous nature. Beginning with the first transfer the trail can be essentially be blurred and the coins re-enter circulation through legitimate transactions with innocent parties. Just like what happens when scammers use cash as well.
