Ethical Question - Updated

Illustration for article titled Ethical Question - Updated

I’ve been messing with a scammer through a throwaway email address. Huge inheritance, same last name, yadda yadda. Anyway, he seems insistent on prying identifying information out of me. I’m contemplating crafting an email attachment or two that may contain something less pleasant then what he’s looking for. Perhaps something that would render his computer slightly less useful.


Update - Replied with two attachments. One to give his browser something to do, and one to have some fun with the cpu. Nicely labeled as word documents ( hopefully). Nothing permanently harmful just an annoyance.  Doubt I’ll hear from him again, but will update if i do.
