Well... Mar 19, 2016

"Turn the tables" seems a bit exaggerated... Looks more like a waste of time to play a prank on the scammer (instead of just ignoring them), unless of course you do it because it's part of your "job", as in this case...

Agree.
Though the one I posted 2 times in this group competes imho quite well. I think posting it for the 3rd time would be a bit embarrassing, so you have to look it up yourself. It was a TED talk. Apparently the 1st episode of that spam saga.

Yes, that one is funnier. You have to hand it to this guy because he has found a way to earn money from these scammers.
