Years ago, a young lady from Nigeria contacted me as a love interest. I knew I was being catfished. I googled the entire contents of her email and found it in a forum warning against the scammer. So I decided to play with this scammer for a few more months until she (he) moved on to a real sucker. Never succeeded in finding out the culprit. But from then on I started researching how to track down the source of scam emails. Eventually I stumbled onto videos from James Veitch , which showed how much more fun you can have with scambaiting rather than being a detective. I am more focused on wasting their time than tracking and prosecuting them since most operate in countries that have weak data protection and fraud laws or corrupt or lazy law enforcement.

Well, after tons of spam crap due internet leaks (and of course, becoming millionaire after cashing out all those random cashboxes...). I thought it will be a cool thing to do would be make lose time those scamers while having fun fooling them around and make waste time instead scaming people.

I was on previous 419eater forum but completely forgot my name and email address used there so... Will start over again. :mrgreen:

I was helping an elderly family friend with a romance scam he got caught up in. (He recently died tens of thousands in debt because I could never talk him out of continuing.)

I'd heard of scambaiting before, and found info on this (old) site. I thought many posted baits were hilarious so I thought I'd try my hand at it.

My first bait ever ended up in Greatest Hits! Heck, this was easy!

Ever since? Nada. Nothing remotely exciting.

I gave up for a while but I'm trying to get back into it now! Just as a way to help out victims!
