What Happened When One Man Decided to Reply to a Spam Email

Spam emails are the worst. While most people just delete them, one brave man decided to take a closer look at where one of his came from.

Enter James Veitch. Instead of deleting his spam emails like most normal people do, he decided to tackle spam head-on by responding to his scammers directly. What followed was a delightfully unexpected correspondence.

Here is the first email James received from a scammer. Seems legit enough, right?

James concluded their correspondence by sending this photo of himself.

James still continues chatting with scammers to this day and has even made a separate email account just for his scammer friends.
