Can you tell us please about where you found it, what you think it's supposed to be, and what encryption it uses.

Currently, it looks like a hash or a really messed up ROT encryption. I'll try reverse ROT in a couple of hours, but It would really be nice if you told us where this came from.

I don't think it's a ROT, look at the capitalization. looks more like a hash to me.

Its a hash for wordpress.
They start with $P$ followed by a char (usually B) followed by an 8 character salt, followed by the actual hash.
It's based on md5 but from what I read its actually a loop calling the MD5 algorithm 8192 times.

http://hashcat.net/hashcat/ has support for these types of hashes. I don't know of any others that also support it.

For fun or not it was obtained illegally therefore we can't help with this.
