I'm sure a few of you have gotten emails from scammers in Africa offering you millions of dollars if you help them "transfer funds." These people ruin the lives of a lot of people. Mostly elderly people who think they are doing good deeds for people in dire need only to have their entire life savings wiped clean. Some people who have went to Africa to get their money back from the scammer get seriously beaten or sometimes even murdered.I'm not going to spoil the entire post here, but I'll assure you that it gets better. Especially if you're having a bad day and need to shoot somebody in the face with an RPG.
Thats where "scambaiting" comes in. It's where you reply to them and act like a gullible westerner wanting to help them out. The object is to waste their time and their money (they use internet cafes there and have to pay fees to use the internet) and to get them to take stupid pictures of themselves and sometimes long journies to London or where ever to "pick up the money in person"
