Welcome gazzauk1967!

There are several mugu guestbook sites online where you can post an innocent "hello" with a baiting address (make sure you're baiting safely!) and the scammers will come to you. Read through the information we've posted in these forums, and don't be afraid to ask for help!

Hi! I'm new here! (Although I've already put up a couple of other posts here just prior to this one). Just started getting into scambaiting (actually found this site while searching for online advice on how to do that). Going through the site and seeing what I can learn (which certainly looks to be quite a bit :D ).

Hello, beautiful scambaiters!
I’m joining because someone just attempted to scam me via email using Covid as a cover (“I’m giving away money to people struggling because of Covid. All you have to do is be one of the first 50 to reply to this email!” That sort of thing.), and honestly it enraged me in a way scams usually don’t. Preying on people desperate because of a pandemic is a level of human garbage I will never understand. So I decided I would seek out some scambaiting forums and hopefully find a way to flood this email so no one actually falls victim.
I guess I got tired of just ignoring scammers. It doesn’t feel like I’m doing enough, even though there isn’t a huge amount I can do.

So yeah, I’ve strung a few scammers alone in the past out of boredom, but I guess I’ve reached my threshold for tolerating scammers, and maybe it’s time I started scambaiting proper. Hopefully I can learn a thing or two here.

Yes sure! i remember when I went around looking the old forum half a year ago that a mentoring program existed, does it still exist and can it be accessed as of now?

@gunner86 - the mentoring program does still exist, the way to be assigned a Mentor is to PM a Moderator (their name is in green) expressing your interest.

Hello! I'm very new to scambaiting. Got interested because of watching the Monetized Youtube Baiter channel on YouTube during lockdown, did some searching and ended up here.

Hello to all here, I am a Dutch and now just freelance journalist and filmmaker.
I live in Bulgaria some years now.
I have been many times scammed, as I am single, by mostly Asian ladies, but ok i have learned my lessons
I came upon this website forum some days ago and today i made a registration and so my first posting here ;)

The biggest reason and I am following a free online course for journalist, is to search for digital footprints and to follow online scammers.

I have been scammed and lost lots of money and so my close friends as well.
Took care of a English photographer for over 22 months as he was without work and clients.
The only income he had was by selling online his pictures.

I was feeding him, giving him a place to stay and even moved from the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia, to a little village and purchased a small country house with a large garden near Greece and Turkey.
I spended all my savings, I am not 66 years old, to pay for this place.
He, John, promised that he will pay me back in parts the first part was due August 25 2019
But he disappeared and I am in big financial problem
He blocked me on many social media and there is just 1 email stating to me that I am a golden soul and he is so sorry...

So I am now trying to save a little money and see if I can do a court case such as cross borders.

Fellow Dutchie here. I am sorry to hear what happened to you.

Here at Eater we deal with advance fee fraud, and our goal is to waste the scammers' time and money. If you want some advice and support you could consider heading over to our sister site, www.scamwarners.com. Over there they are far better equiped to give assistance to victims of a scam than we are. I wish you the best of luck!

@Hiccup
Welcome! (Back?). Take a look around, and if you have any questions, just let us know.

I was a member on the old forum, still using the same username. However, it's been a while since I've actively baited, maybe it's time to get back into the joy's of wasting lad's time.

I'd been lurking for quite a while and recently signed up. I love Linoline's and Birlic's church baits, so funny. Out of interest what is your success rate? Roughly what percentage of lads do you get to the monument/baptism phase?
I've managed to get a fair bit of mileage out of the lenny / moneygram chatbots. Thank you to whoever created it.
It's good to be here.

Hello I’m new here and will probably just do a bunch of reading. I really hate scammers and love messaging with them when I get random calls or texts.

We try to make a selection of the "boys" we work with, so that we have chances of success as close as possible to the maximum. This presupposes a preliminary preparation, in which we try to find out if the idiot is the "ideal candidate" to be appointed as Reverend and to build the whole funny structure around "his new parish". If we believe that the lad "qualifies", then we start rolling out our scenario. These are the scammers we work with.
As success rates, I estimate that we have a success rate of 15-20% of the total scammers we come in contact with... and a succes rate of 80-90% of the total scammers who pass the first selection process (mentioned above).

Newbie here. Started following scambaiters on youtube last year and never looked back. Stopped them scamming my father who didnt have a clue, he thought it was legit.
Dealing with a load of spam calls and emails myself only pushes me harder to deal with these low lifes!
