I love this game!

Catching scammers out and exposing their dishonesty to the world is so much fun!

Even better, you get the satisfaction of knowing that you are saving a lot of people from needlessly wasting their hard-earned cash.

What could be better?

This is one of the best uses of the internet -- ever!

I've had a relentless amount of scam emails from these guys day in day out advertising the DroneX, air conditioners and other rubbish. Luckily the email was coming from a *.icu domain so I was able to blacklist it through my web host. I feel sorry for all those people suckered in making a purchase

I love getting a phone call announcing that my computer has shock horror a virus or such!! Into formless mode and see how long I can spin them out before confessing to owning a Mac that’s also running Linux. At that point I can tell they don’t believe that I can’t find the ‘any’ key.
Every minute they’re tied up is a minute they’re not conning some vulnerable soul.
