Email Scammers Have A New Enemy Introduced By Netsafe – Re:scam

Have you been receiving scam emails? Forward them to me@rescam.org, and Netsafe will deal with the phishing scammers for you.

A New Zealand-based, non-profit cybersecurity firm Netsafe, has introduced an AI email bot in order to waste the scammers’ time.

The process is simple;

When you see a scam email in your inbox, you only need to let Netsafe know about the situation and forward that email to me@rescam.org. – Netsafe is keeping your email details confidential for security purposes, so there is nothing to be worried about that part.

As it is promised, Re:scam replies to the scam email and starts a dialogue with the scammer; asks “a never-ending series of questions and anecdotes so that scammers have less time to pursue real people.”



At the end of the conversation, when the scammer gives up replying the emails, Netsafe sends you a short summary of what the clever artificial intelligence bot has been up to with the scammer who has been dealt with.

It’s explained on Netsafe’s website that, Re:scam can take on multiple personas, imitating real human tendencies with humour and grammatical errors, and can engage with infinite scammers at once, meaning it can continue an email conversation for as long as possible.

Here you can watch the video to see how Re:scam works:

Netsafe CEO Martin Cocker, said:

We are really concerned about the growth of predatory email phishing, while victims remain essentially powerless,

Everyone is susceptible to online phishing schemes and no matter how tech savvy you are, scammers are becoming increasingly sophisticated,

Re:scam will adapt as the scammers adapt their techniques, collecting data that will help us to protect more people acros.

Today, we are starting to see a brand new trend that has gained a lot of popularity – known as Chat bots. Companies have already been reaching their customers using bots and finding some of them very useful in terms of responding customer needs correctly and keeping customers satisfied.

However, as Cocker also noted, scammers have been becoming sophisticated and this is the reason why people are skeptical when it comes to being active on the online platforms.

Having considered it all, it is good to know that the number of companies and organizations, who sensibly decided to use chat bots and AI for fighting back against online fraud, has been increasing so far and this is just a start.
