Revenge can be Sweet

Posted in Not the Job by 200

One of the biggest pains of my online life is bloody spam email. It is no exaggeration to say that 98% of all emails I receive through various sources, are a complete waste of space. If I’m not being told my girlfriend wants me to have a larger todger I’ve won some lottery and all I have to do to get my hands on the winnings is give my bank account details to some Nigerian criminal.

Even with anti-spam software I still get bombarded with shite which takes up my precious time if only to delete the bloody stuff. Wouldn’t it be nice to get your own back on some of these worthless toe-rags who blight everyone’s existence?

Take a look at 419Eater, a website which showcases the innocent punter who has got his own back on some of the the Nigerian Scam artists. OK, he hasn’t locked any up, nor has he capped any of them, but he has made a few of them look stupid. Check out his email replies and the photographs in which he gets the scammers to pose holding ridiculous messages up to the camera.

    419eater.com was subject to a prolonged DDOS attack last year, along with other anti-scam sites (AA419.org, fraudwatchers.org, etc). They evidently upset some criminals well beyond the point of just making them look silly. See http://www.castlecops.com/t200554-419eater_com.html

    Obviously the one you have got is not working properly so why don’t you change it?
    If you key in “Spamfighter” on google you can download the programme. It is free as well.
    You may get some for a while but eventually it will disappear.

    Hi. I recommend you spamfighter. It is an AntiSPAM solution bassed on emails and IPs black list. It seems to be pretty effective. You can find a review of this software at

    I hope this works for you too.

    Good Luck
