Question: Do posts have to be approved all the time, or just for some sort of probationary period?

Welcome back, doc. Consider it an anti-spam modality.

Hello! I found this place from a tech support scam baiter on Youtube, and I've already gotten started with a shiny new email and a lad from Scamwarners.

Hello there. I've always wanted to show those scammers what for since I saw that guy's TED talk. Little success so far though.

Welcome AtlasWasTaken,

Sometimes it's good to read up on the posted baits here for a bit before you attempt to engage with the lads - TED talks are fun, but often delivered for comedic purposes, and most of the work we do is a bit more long-game oriented. It's easy to come up with something funny to say to a scammer and suddenly find yourself being called out as a joker! The good news is playing the long game can cause far more pain to the scammers than any joke will 8-)

Hello,

I am an old man and have not much to offer.

I have a question: where or to whom can I sent phishing mails (with full headers), i am receiving them regularly.

Thank you.

R.

Welcome to eater. If you have scam emails (fake notices of inheritance, saying you won the lottery, work at home schemes, etc.) please post them to our sister site for scam victims, scamwarners.com. Phishing emails (emails, often with dodgy links, that try to trick you into providing your email password or identification) are best simply deleted.

Hello, everyone. I was here years ago. But have since lost my old credentials. For the life of me, I couldn't even remember the email address I registered with. So I just created a new account. Anyway, I hope to get a couple more piggy banks this time around. At any rate, let's go waste some scammers' time. Good luck to everyone!

Thank you! I'm still trying to remember everything I've forgotten since I was last here. I know I took part in the mentoring program back then. It's a great tool for any new members looking for a good jumping off point. That's assuming it's still available.

Welcome y'all! I'm not actively baiting these days, but I'm still busy killing fake sites.

Nice to find this site. I am in the middle of "attempted scams" by two right now. I'll be posting elsewhere to get some guidance, since it's ongoing.
Thanks!

Good Greetings, y'all! I'm kind of new to this whole forum thing so I hope I'd be able to get around that.

True story...
He's not kidding at all :lol:

Welcome everyone :) As for myself, I'm just an ordinary (maybe a bit weird) guy that started baiting in 2004. Married with kids and cats. Other than baiting I enjoy playing FPS. Date night once a week with the wife but not so much now that everything is closed.

Hello! I'm totally new here...in the past, I've wanted to try my hand at baiting some of the tech support scammers, but I only know enough about computer programming to get myself into some serious trouble. I figured this is a safer way to have a laugh at a scammer's expense :D
