Conversations with chatbots can get really annoying! That’s why security enterprise Netsafe decided, they might be the ideal dialogue partners for scammers. So called scammers try to get their hands on your money or personal data by promising you fake lottery wins or hot dates via e-mail. During the last years, scamming has become a worldwide and profitable criminal business. As the criminals themselves can impossibly be found or stopped, Netsafe decided to beat scammers with their own game by programming a chatbot called Re: scam. Just forward a scam mail in your inbox to email@example.com and the bot will drill your scammers with useless questions – until they finally lose their nerves. Definitely the most fun way to get rid of criminals! Check out the introduction Video by The Verge and start scamming back!
