Welcome!

We recommend having a seperate emailadress to 'harvest' scam emails (called a 'catcher account'), which you don't use to scambait with. If you are looking for scammers to have fun with, head over to www.scamwarners.com and find a new friend there!

As for responses: some scammers will answer quicker than other. Some wont answer at all.

Thank you! I already got one reply earlier, seems like because of the timezone issues it's going to be a sort of one-per-day dealio. Now it's just waiting to get more scammers to bite.

Hello everybody,
I am just starting out in scambaiting, so I accept all the advice and tips to get started.
I speak a very little English but I'm French speaking.

Bienvenu(e) Sganarelle! I grew up hearing French spoken around me, but did not learn to speak it unfortunately - something I've always wanted to correct. We are delighted to have baiters among us who speak languages other than English! Please let us know if you have any questions, and be sure to read all of the safety tips.

Hello everyone!
Finally decided to bite the bullet and start baiting properly since picking up tips from Monetized Youtube Baiter. Got a good range of 'victims' in mind... just need some tasty bits :D

Hello new to the group! You are all my heroes!! What a deliciously joyful way to spend some time doing some good. Not sure if I am in the right place for my immediate concern. My 16 year old daughter on the Autism Spectrum was convinced by a hacker to change her phone number and email on her instagram account. He/she then took over the account and is using it for a bitcoin scam. They used a Nigerian area code. Good thing is she wrote down their email, [email removed - KLG]. My wife engaged them and then posted the cat online which resulted in immediate death threats. What is my best move?

Welcome, MrB!

First off, I am so very sorry this happened to your family. Scammers are scum, and we're seeing a lot more of those types of scams lately. I removed the email address for a few reasons, but mostly because we don't want the scammer googling their address and finding your post here - that would not be good, and we definitely don't want to give them a heads up that we know who they are.

Your best move is to report everything to your local police, and block the scammer from all contact. If your daughter was using other social media accounts with similar passwords or user names, have her change all of her passwords just to be safe.

Unfortunately the scammer has your personal contact (and that of your daughter & possibly your wife, unless she created a fake account for the cat photos) and they can do some very damaging things with that information. It's best if you block them and do not respond - they will move on.

We don't encourage anyone to bait their personal scammers as there are too many emotions involved, and it's very easy to make mistakes. Again, reporting the scammer to the police and securing all of your daughter's social media accounts is your best path forward. I'm very glad your daughter has parents who are on top of things and figured out the problem!

Hi, guys. I'm new to this site and I have insomnia, so I figured might as well do something to entertain myself while I'm whittling away the small hours. I'm excited to learn and (carefully) get started. I saw in the beginners post that everyone should ask for a mentor, so I'm going to poke around some more and see if I gather enough confidence to do so. Look forward to working with you all!

Hi All,

Brand new to the Forum. Thank you for allowing me to join. I've become interested in sticking it to the Scammer after seeing all of the scams on Facebook Market place. Market Place has been littered with scams over the past several months. I've communicated to a few of them posing as a potential buyer and they've sent me instructions to purchase eBay cards and reply with the card information. All anonymous of course and I don't plan to send them any information. So now I kind of feel like the dog that caught the car, now what do I do with it?? :D I've replied back with questions that I know the answer to just to keep them going.

So I did some research and found this site. Now it's time to learn more about this new hobby. Besides the fact that they are scamming people out of their hard earned cash, they are posing as US Military and that they are being deployed to Poland, etc. to help out with Ukraine. I won't say what I'm thinking about them here. :x

If anyone has any ideas how I can proceed with this type of scam, please let me know. Thanks for your help!

By the way, I know that the name Scam Buster seems a bit cliche on a site like this, but what the hell.

Welcome MolecularConcept and Scam_Buster! All names are awesome as long as they hide your true identity ;-) We do encourage spending your free time making those lads wail in pain and frustration, and we feel exactly the same way about those $^#&@! scammers who use the war for their gain.

Definitely be cautious about Facebook and don't use a real life account to engage with scammers, but we have lots of ideas for using fake baiting accounts to waste the scammers' time and baffle their attempts. Pull up a comfy chair, pour your favorite beverage, read up on how to bait safely and ask us anything along the way!

Hi there hello I am a casual baiter of several years on-and-off experience who enjoys confusing scammers by writing in long-winded run-on sentences with many multiple redundant words which has proven to be a very successful modality.

Seriously though, hi 419Eater! I've never been a part of a communal effort before - the nearest I've gotten is a very brief conversation with someone who tried to warn me I was being scammed. They told me I was far from the only one baiting that particular scammer. This is gonna be fun. :)

Welcome, TreyBake!

We've had a lot of fun with a variety of "wordy" replies. Another tactic is to create a reply, and then find & replace one of the letters. For example,

"We've had a lpt pf fun wlth a varlety pf "wprdy" replles. Anpther tactlc ls tp create a reply, and then flnd & replace pne pf the letters."

OK, I replaced two letters. This helps when the lad is using Google translate, or just having a hard time with the language. When they complain, tell them your keyboard is broken.

Looking forward to seeing your baits!
Kitty

Hey all, old baiter returning after a over decade of inactivity. I decided to return when I came across someone randomly the other day and heard them talk about how they were scammed out of thousands of dollars. I was furious at what happened and it reminded me of my old baiting days and was inspired to come back. Now I do not plan on going after this scammer, as far as I know the victim is working with law enforcement and I don't want to mess anything up. Also it's been a while and to say I am rusty is an understatement. I'm pretty much a newb at this again so I will be doing A LOT of reading to catch up.

That said I'm glad this site is still around and people are still taking it to the scammers.
