Email scams are a multibillion dollar industry, so the 'Re:Scam' chatbot service is designed to offer users a way to fight back against them by doing the opposite of ignoring them: spamming them right back.

'Re:Scam' works by having scam emails sent to me@rescam.org, which will send out personalized messages to the scammers that are tailored to ensure that the sender's time is wasted on what appears to be a hot lead. This means that they will stick with the chatbot rather than move onto their next potential target, which in turn could help to drive down the number of victims.

The 'Re:Scam' chatbot service was built by Netsafe and is powered by a sophisticated AI email program that will help increase safety when it comes to email.
