Netsafe New Zealand have built an amazing new chatbot called Re:scam. You can have Re:scam reply to scam and phishing emails on your behalf using a variety of false personas that all create a long and ultimately pointless conversation wasting the attackers time. Watch the launch video below.
Follow along on twitter at @rescambot
Initially it look like Re:scam is targeting 419 scammers and not malware spammers or other types of phishing. Will be great to see how this evolves. Well done Netsafe NZ!
Keen to hear your thoughts on this, good idea? Maybe not? Have you used it yet to annoy a prince with some complex money issues? Let me know @SparkleOps.
