Entertainment in the World of Scams
Scams are a serious problem, but there are some very funny episodes in the scam world. Especially, when scam-baiters turn the tables on scammers and scam the scammers. A number of websites specialize in this (which we don't recommend you try on your own - many scammers are violent, dangerous scumbags).
Here are some of our favorites:
- www.Scanorama.com by Eve Edelson, a computer systems engineer from California who wrote, "Scamorama: Turning the Tables on Email Scammers. " - it is VERY entertaining!)
- The world's dumbest Phishing Scammer - an audio recording of a call with a stupid scammer and his un-intimidated potential victim
And please let us know about any suspicious calls or emails you receive. We look for patterns so that we can alert the authorities and victims to new scams, before it is too late!
