I am just curious if any of you heard of people counter scam baiting?

I mean, finding some of your email addresses, and sending a nigerian scam to you for the sole purpose of having fun by making you think your baiting a scammer?

Sure - those are really just a sub-species of troll, and are fairly rare.

Meh, while I am at asking dumb questions new people ask, might as well go on...


Do people here ever give a scammer any amount of cash (like a 2 digit figure) with the intention of making the scammer waste much more due to the trust you gave them?

They begin to trust us when they hear our outgoing messages on the K7 number and really trust us when they get the renamed DLL file instead of a passport.

Not a good idea. $10 is probably worth more to a Nigerian lad than it is to us.
And the WU fee to transfer this amount is $15.

Believe it or not but we don't even need to send them money to get them to do a lot of the stuff they do. As long as you convince them that if they do something there will be money waiting for them, you can get them to do a lot of things (banners, videos, artwork, packages, ...)

Personally I'm to cheap to do that. Also I don't know if it would make the scammer that much more trusting - they don't think like normal people.
