I’m thinking about becoming a scambaiter, but I want to know if it’s legal or not. I looked it up everywhere, but no one would just say ‘Yes it’s legal’ or ‘No, it’s illegal’.
I’m no lawyer. Take this with a lot of salt grains, but scambaiting itself (i.e.:prank calling them) is not illegal. You are simply wasting their time. However the legalities of connecting to their computers and such is murky waters that I don’t know much about
This is actually my first post. Just found out about this place. Check with your state laws. In my state you have to have the permission of both parties to record a phone call unless a person is being a nuisance, attempting to extort you, etc… Some states are one party consent.
If it is breaking the law in your state, I doubt anyone would report you for it. The scammers would have to do so and that’s not likely.
I hope you’ve been enjoying some scambaiting since your post!
