Here is a link to a recent TV report by a local station on scam baiting. It includes an interview with a scam baiter and some trophy pictures. I searched the forum and did not find this so I hope it's not previously posted.

Well it's gotta be someone in here -- the tip-off is the bread on the head. Or is that a universal tool of humiliation used by all scambaiters?

On an off-topic note -- as a writer, I had the hardest time reading that article. Whoever wrote that should be fired. I don't think I've ever seen such a poorly written article come out of a professional news organization, in terms of grammar, construction, etc.

But of course that's not relevant -- it's still a good thing that the word is getting out, as hopefully a few more potential victims will be alerted and won't go sending in their Social Security checks to mugus.

If that's representative of journalism in the US then I'm packing my bags and applying for a job. I could do way better than that. C for effort F for english skills. He only gets a C because of the subject matter.

Much of the text appears to be a partial and condensed transcript of the video. I agree, it is hard to read.

Bear in mind, that is a TV report, not print journalism. They are not required to write, just read. Laughing

yeah, maybe it'd be more bearable on video than on "paper"

On the clip you will see he got the scammer to write TSB which suggests the guy frequents The Scambaiter dot com rather than Eater.
