I love exchanging emails with my Tunisian prince cousin as much as the next guy, but I can’t send him money for my gold whenever he asks.

Netsafe, a non-profit online safety organization, has developed a program to help with unwanted email scams. Forward all of your unwanted emails to me@rescam.org, and the service will take care of the rest. Scammers want your money, and will go to ridiculous lengths to keep the conversation going as long as it takes. Nothing better than wasting their time.

Introducing Re:scam – an artificially intelligent email bot 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 we’ll take it from there. We’ll even send you a summary of the conversations Re:scam has had with the scammer – sometimes they can be quite funny!

This is hilarious, but it’s just another step towards being railroaded by the robots.
