So when you refer to patiently you mean like an average of 10/15 emails before I start to do some daring requests?
As for building confidence, how do I fully build one when the scammer asks me for info and details right from the start and I have to stall and decline? I do know some types of scam are not really worth trolling or baiting (or so I've read around here in some topics) but my dodging technique, as of now, is just saying I'm not sure I can send that many information over email and playing unsure about the requests they make. By doing this I try to get them to start sending me details about the scam. But there's probably more suitable techniques I can employ to stall and keep them talking...
For instance, I am replying to a famous scam (won't state which because they actually may look at this types of forums and this section is publicly accessible - *insert thin foil hat here* ) and the guy just blatantly ignores my requests for further information and "re asks" for my details. I am playing a youngster who is unsure about sending info over the web and the scammer always responds, so I assume he's interested because I'm playing easy and naive, however I think I may start to loose him if I don't start sending some bullshit info to keep him on the hook. I played the broken .pdf card and maybe I should have waited a little longer.
I think I'll spend some time tomorrow setting up a viciously religious old grandpa who posts on Facebook 24/7 eheh !
