  1. How to bait scammers safely and how to avoid assisting them Never use your real name Create a new email address for baiting - use gmail.com or outlook.com because these hide your IP address - use [email protected] etc. instead of [email protected] Never send any real contact details - these include your private phone number and real address Never send an actual passport scan, ID card scan etc. if the scammer asks for them - even if you make a bad fake one. Scammers reuse these and your fake ID might be used to trick a victim! Never tell a scammer s/he's been baited If a scammer's wrong about something, don't correct them - 'de-education' goes a step further and is where you actually convince a scammer that some incorrect information is correct. This stops a scammer from making their scams more convincing as they will continue to give obviously wrong details in their scams How to make it look like you're replying to a scam you found somewhere else If you are using a scam email from Scammed.by, for example, create a new email in your baiting account, add a couple of blank lines then paste: On 20 January 2014 16:56, Name Surname <[email protected]> wrote: Replace the values with the details of the scam email, you can make up stuff for the date and time if you're in a hurry Then paste the original scam email under that. Finally, change the subject of the email to: Re: OriginalSubject Now it looks like you're replying to the original scam - you don't have to do this, but some scammers do get suspicious if you're not replying to their scam but sending a new email
