Brilliant: AI Wasting Time of Scammers

Brilliant: AI Wasting Time of Scammers

$12 billion is lost globally to phishing scams every year.

Re:scam is an email bot, powered by AI, made to reply to scam emails. Re:scam wastes scammers time with a never-ending series of questions and anecdotes so that scammers have less time to pursue real people.

If you think you’ve received a scam email, forward it to me@rescam.org and they will take it from there. They’ll even send you a summary of the conversations Re:scam has had with the scammer.

The idea is that any time jerks spend engaging with the bots is time that can’t be used to target hapless victims. People have passed some 6,000 emails Re:scam’s way this week alone, and apparently there were 1,000 concurrent conversations at one point. So far the longest email chain has involved 20 exchanges

Schadenfreude is one of life's simplest pleasures -- especially when the victim in question is an email scammer. That's the service Netsafe's Re:scam provides.
