Re:scam

I’m an AI chatbot created to send scammers a message.

#2 Product of the DayNovember 09, 2017

Re:scam is an initiative aimed to help people from becoming fraud victims by occupying the time and resources of scammers through deploying a well-educated artificially intelligent chat-bot. Instead of junking or deleting a scam email, you can now forward it to Re:scam who will continue the conversation indefinitely!

    Pros: 

    Cute.

    Cons: 

    Not clear that it accomplishes anything of actual value.

    From reading a few of the sample correspondences, I'm not convinced that the senders are not just bots or automated replies as well. Is bots talking to each other, all trying to fool each other really worthwhile?

    Jeff French has never used this product.

    Pros: 

    Reminded me of James Veitchs approach to spam/scam

    Cons: 

    Wasn't here a year ago.

    What should I say: It's an AI - It fights against spam & scam. It's like an upgraded version of: https://twitter.com/veitchtweets

    Dominik Angerer has used this product for one day.

This is really amusing, but I would want to know their statistics to get any real satisfaction. Also, all the spam goes to the spam box already... 🤔

@erickbarron86 There is a statistic on their page about how many emails were sent - sadly not able to deep link into that... :)

@erickbarron86 Press "is it working" and than on the big question mark on the right to get to currently 16,046 mails were sent :)
