Any attempt to scam a scammer may sound like a good way to stop them, but it also may accidentally provide further information to the cyber scammer.
This is also known as scambaiting and can be dangerous to both the scammer and the scambaiter, as well as potentially exacerbating the problem of cybercrime.
Moreover, scambaiting can also lead to unintended consequences, such as the release of personal information or the compromise of sensitive systems. Additionally, it is not ethical to engage in such activities as it goes against the principles of good behaviour and responsible online behaviour.
Instead of attempting to scam cybercriminals, I would suggest focusing on staying safe online by using best practices for online security, such as using strong passwords, being cautious when giving out personal information, and keeping your software up to date. Additionally, it’s important to educate yourself about the latest scams and how to identify them by having good cyber training.
If everyone took cyber protection seriously the scammers would be alot less successful and cyber scamming activity reduce as it would be not profitable.
