  • One Man Got A Spammer To Join 'The Holy Church Of The Order Of The Red Breast' on Random Spam Victims Got Back At Their Spammers

    (#3) One Man Got A Spammer To Join 'The Holy Church Of The Order Of The Red Breast'

    Some pranksters' plans are more elaborate than others, but few can beat the person who got one spammer to paint a red circle on his chest. The spammer claimed to be Nigerian Prince Joe Eboh and offered 20% of a $25 million sum. 

    The recipient, in turn, claimed to be Father Hector Barnett, a member of the Holy Church of The Order of The Red Breast. He insisted that he could not do any business dealings with someone who wasn't a member of his faith, but he would reconsider if Eboh promised to convert. Eboh jumped at the opportunity - and Father Barnett explained the history of the church in excruciating detail.

    To prove his commitment to the faith, Eboh was asked to send a topless picture of himself with the symbol of the church painted on his chest, and to sign a document swearing to abide by all the church's rules, including, "I shall not listen to Hip Hop" and "I shall not touch the one-eyed trouser snake."

    (#1) James Veitch Has Made A Career Out Of Trolling Spammers

    To defeat a spammer, you have to think like a spammer. James Veitch took this advice to the next level when he decided to embark on a crusade against spammers. He's managed to take this unusual hobby and turn it into a full-on career, even writing a book about his experience as a spam fighter.

    According to Veitch, the most important thing you can do is waste a spammer's time. In a TED Talk, Veitch discussed the first time he ever responded to a spammer in detail.

    One day, Veitch received an email from a man offering him an exclusive business deal. Veitch decided to play along, asking for details on the deal. The spammer informed him that he wanted to ship Veitch $2.5 million dollars in gold, but Veitch had bigger ideas. He kept asking for more and more gold, made fake graphs to illustrate his business savvy, and forced the spammer to speak to him in a ridiculous code.

    (#4) A 77-Year-Old Man Beat His Spammers At Their Own Game

    When 77-year-old Herman Marmon received an email from someone calling themselves Davidson Boone, purportedly a representative of Budweiser, he was instantly suspicious. Boone had a business proposal for Marmon, saying he could get paid if he agreed to cover his car in Budweiser advertisements. Marmon ignored the email, but a short while later, he received a similar pitch from "Samsung" that offered him $350 a week for up to three months. 

    Marmon decided to play along, and soon enough this spammer was sending him false checks for a hefty sum of money. Marmon did his best to waste as much time as possible, and eventually called the spammer out on the scheme.

    (#5) A Spammer Got Charged $40 By UPS After A Redditor Sent A Box Of Gravel

    Redditor /u/AngelOfLight pulled the ultimate troll move on a spammer, managing to trick the spammer out of $40 in the process. The Redditor posted an ad for their PS2 on eBay, then received an email from a person claiming to be an African pastor. The pastor was hoping to get the PS2 at a reduced rate for their orphanage, and the Redditor agreed.

    After a little digging, the Redditor tracked the spammer's location to an internet cafe in Lagos, Nigeria. The spammer sent a prepaid UPS label to the Redditor, who slapped it onto a box full of gravel. The spammer was infuriated when they got the package, for which they were charged a $40 delivery fee.

    To add insult to injury, the Redditor falsely claimed they had contacted the FBI and given over the spammer's information.

    (#10) A Redditor Led On A Spammer For A Month

    If spammers are to be believed, Nigerian princes are in constant need of financial assistance. One former Redditor detailed their attempt to "help" one such spammer. They admitted to keeping the spammer occupied for several months as they strung them along.

    The spammer asked for money orders through Western Union, and the Redditor was happy to oblige. They would tell the spammer that they sent the money to the account number provided, but the spammer would insist they never received payment. When the Redditor responded with the account number they supposedly sent money to, it was always off by one or two digits.

    The Redditor continued to make the same "mistake" for a month before the spammer realized what was happening.

    If your goal is to waste a spammer's time, you probably don't want to waste too much of your own in the process. Luckily, Brian Weinreich worked out the perfect solution. He created an automated system that's designed to waste time by sending the spammers an unending series of questions.

    The Sp@mLooper, as it's called, is an open source program with which anyone can tinker. It sends a series of questions every time it receives an email. Some examples are:

    "Hmmm... I like what you're saying, but can you provide me with just a little more information? Looking for specifics."

    "Very nice! Where abouts are you located?"

    "Wow! This sounds like an awesome opportunity. Can you tell me a little more about it?"
