[INFO] Scam Baiting (scambaiting)

Scam baiting is a form of Internet vigilantism where the vigilante poses as a potential victim to the scammer in order to waste their time, gather information that will be of use to authorities, or publicly humiliate the scammer.

It is primarily used to fight the 419 Nigerian advance-fee scam and can be done either out of a sense of civic duty or as a form of amusement...!

So there is huge scope for developing scam baiting as a sport!!
