I wrote a small program that can delete any directory and its contents if the user enters the proper credentials into the login form. I was considering sending this to a scammer and telling them that this is the online portal for my bank, and the easiest way for us to transfer monies. What I was thinking of doing was making it delete their system32 file thus corrupting their operating system. I'm new here, but I was curious if this is acceptable behavior because I can think of how this might be ethically grey.

Hi, welcome here and I apologize for locking your thread.
We do not support the sending of viruses and "trojans" to the scammers, nor attempts to hack, phish or hijack their email accounts and/or computers. Viruses and "trojans" will be unknowingly spread to the computers of innocent people and we are only trying to make it difficult for the scammers. On top of that, the spreading of viruses and hacking attempts is an illegal activity in the UK, where this Board is located, as well as many other jurisdictions. Please do not start topics on such subjects. **snipped this bit for now - TS**

AH, AH, AH! Two little !
