Internet Scams: What if you replied?
Online scammers are getting pretty smart these days, often with realistic emails claiming to be your bank or mobile provider and asking you to confirm your account. If you're not careful, you could easily be tricked. But what if instead of getting annoyed and deleting these emails straight away, you had a bit of fun with it? Introducing James Veitch's life for the past 5 years.
If you haven't seen it his TED talk 'This is what happens when you reply to spam email', I am not sure what you've been doing with your life. Maybe you've been living under a rock. This is where Vietch's journey began, when he decided to reply to a spam email from a Nigerian scammer.
Despite Veitch using some of his material from his humble beginnings, his show was still incredibly hilarious. He has a quirky sense of humour that even while having tech issues managed to have the audience in fits of laughter.
You'll love Vietch's cheeky experiment as he torments the scammers into a state of frustration that only a scammer deserves. Some may go as far to say he is "a total disgrace to manhood" however I would say he is f*cking funny.
