AI Starts Fighting Scam Emails

Tired of receiving scam emails? Well, now there is a way to fight back. A New Zealand based company, Netsafe, has introduced an AI-powered email bot, Re:scam, that will reply (instead of you) to scam emails to waste their time!

$12 billion is lost globally to phishing scams every year.   Netsafe is determined to do something about this huge loss.  So, what to do with scam emails?

Re:scam works in a funny way. watch the video to know more about it:!

According to the Netsafe, “If you think you’ve received a scam email, forward it to and we’ll take it from there. We’ll even send you a summary of the conversations Re:scam has had with the scammer – sometimes they can be quite funny!

Re:scam is actually a chatbot. It is well-educated and intelligent.  If you forward a scam email to Re: scam, it will start behaving like a curious person and reply to the scammers genuinely.   The bot will continue talking with the scammers until the scammers stop replying.  Its purpose is simple: just to waste the scammers’ time and eventually their profit too.

So, why you are waiting for? Forward your scam email to and see what happens! Don’t let the scammers make a profit!
