The Scambaiting Bible contains strong language. Reader discretion is advised.
scambait (verb) — the art of consuming the time and resources of a criminal engaged in deception fraud so as to make such fraud more expensive and less profitable to undertake.
Welcome to a new resource for those seeking to get into scambaiting and to share information with the veterans in the community.
We have written a guide on how to use BobRTC to place telephone calls to scammers and effectively waste their time and have fun.
No telephone user in the USA or Canada or any country where English is a dominant language seems to be free of these calls. Most of them are originating from call centers located in India and the Philippines, with shady owners located everywhere. We are the community that fights back with the same tools that the scammers use to flood our telephones with calls.
When you get a scam call, be sure to complain to authorities.
If you call a number back and you reach a scammer, we'd like to know about it! You can share potential scammer numbers with us on our Matrix server.
