    Hello from the Pacific NW

    Saying Hello! because I have good manners

    That sounds about right but you'll notice when it's time. Get them 'off script' before you try anything - again, you'll notice when they are. Scammers will usually start off by using a set of scripted responses with you, so it's worth asking questions or saying something that would require a custom answer. If they reply with some generic scripted response, ask the questions again! Don't be afraid to get impatient with them and ask why they're ignoring you - e.g. with your current bait! You could try to find a reason for not proceeding with them (that's where fake churches help - scammers need to join before going further!). You could also ask why they need that information and how they can prove it's stored securely. Your grandpa idea sounds promising, hope it works!

    Saying Hello! because I have good manners

    Uncle Spam! Baits in general - scammers are often pretty paranoid when you send your first replies, they don't know who you are but they do know that scambaiters exist. "Straight bait" for the first few exchanges - don't say anything weird, make plausible excuses when they ask for stuff like your passport scan or birth certificate (I don't recommend even sending fake ones because they reuse these when messaging victims). When the scammer seems to trust you, then you can start getting more inventive and really slowly start asking them to do anything you want them to do. Main thing is patience! If you go too quickly, they'll drop you. Don't go asking for sign photos etc straight away! Also, think what baiting achieves - it wastes their time, and gives you their personal details. When they ask for money, it's worth trying to get them to give you their bank account - you can get their bank account closed! When you get their bank accounts, send them my way and I'll make sure they get closed (also include any proof linking that bank account to a scammer - like the original scam email and the email which included the bank account) Baiting on Facebook - I recommend using an incognito/in-private/private window in your web browser to try and stop Facebook linking that account to you. I discourage using photos of ITPs (innocent third parties) because (1) they're innocent, and (2) scammers will reuse photos you give them - instead you can for example use prisoner mugshots or photos of known criminals. Make sure you have several photos of the person - scammers on Facebook often ask for other photos of you and if you don't give them any they will often stop messaging you! Hide your friends list on Facebook, and post/share rubbish often (scammers love old widows who share religious pictures on Facebook!) Hope this helps!

    Hello from London

    Hi, welcome Good to meet you, it seems people are starting to come back to TSB again so just tidying up the spam! Not ideal that the scammer has your name and hometown - you could even try picking him up with a new identity and stopping your other bait if you get him hooked again.

  13. Well, hello there Welcome to theScamBaiter version 2.0! It's been a chaotic few days, the server this site was on before was, shall we say, a bit ill. I'll apologise now for sending two emails saying the site was working again, when it wasn't. Both times I sent the emails out it was working fine, but then it got really really slow again. So I've moved it to my own server (for any techies it's an elderly HP ProLiant ML310 that I've upgraded to a 3GHz Xeon X3370, 4GB RAM (soon to be 8), running Windows Server 2012 R2) so now it's on the same server as Scammed.by and it lives in my home. It's reliable, and everything seems fine now (I hope!). So... what's new? The forum is running a whole new version of Invision Power Suite as you can see, so everything looks nice and new and seems to work much better. What better way to celebrate the new forum than to give it a try? A community is nothing without its members but together we can built theScamBaiter up to be something special (again). I'll make more of an effort to post, I've been busy but scams are something I care about so I will put some time into this now . There are plenty of scammers out there unfortunately, but together we will waste their time and resources - if you want to find someone to bait just head to http://scammed.by and take your pick! Have fun but don't forget to stay safe and ethical - never use your real email address to contact them, you don't want a criminal knowing your name do you? If you're unsure about posting, we have a test area where you can post whatever you want. Lastly, if you have any feedback or questions or comments just comment below or send me a PM - I always respond!

    Hi To All! New At This Forum.

    I've had lads give up a few times, it's rare but it happens, sometimes involves curses, other times they just start ignoring you

    Is It Too Late?

    If you just stop contacting them you'll be fine, it's only if you wind them up that things can get bad!
