    '...We've all just read on another thread about the guy who fell for the Nigerian scam. Well scam baiting is something new to me, but could well be my next new hobby:

    Does somebody want to transfer millions of dollars into your account?
    Does someone want you pay you to cash cheques and send them the money?
    Met a new friend/penpal on a friendship/dating site who's asking you for money?
    Has a dying person contacted you wanting your help to give his money to charity?
    Have you sold an item and are asked to accept a payment larger than the item amount?

    IT'S A SCAM!

    Don't fall for common scams like this - fight them!

    So what is scambaiting? Well, put simply, you enter into a dialogue with scammers, simply to waste their time and resources. Whilst you are doing this, you will be helping to keep the scammers away from real potential victims and screwing around with the minds of deserving thieves.​

    Hey buddy.

    I remember 11 years ago some dude overseas needed me to cash a check for him. I said sure, why not.

    He even had it made out in my name and everything, it was like 600 bucks, I was 14, that was a lot of money SO I KEPT IT AND BLOCKED THE GUY.

    Who scammed who? lol.
