How to scam the phishing scammer by keeping him busy on the bait using AI

How to use AI to deal with phishing emails in an organization.

In my previous article I wrote about security awareness for users and the need to educate them on phishing.

According to “People spend a total of 17 hours a week reading, responding and sending work emails both at work and at home.” This can be hectic, counter-productive and many times half of the emails are junk mail and phishing attempts.

These attacks are so honey-coated with promises of making instant millions or inheriting a good fortune which may make it difficult to resist sometimes. The easiest way of identifying a phishing attack is to check the email origins and normally the grammar is of bitter taste.

Many phishing emails request the receiver to sign-in using the provided link or provide banking details for the purported transaction which simply leads to a compromise and or loss of funds. Users are strongly advised not to clink any links from unknown sources and to check for website security before entering banking details. As a basic rule, never enter your bank details on a none https website.

If by any chance -which normally happens, you continue to receive these emails, simply forward them to they will do a good job on wasting the scammer’s time using an artificial intelligence (AI) email robot to play along while leading nowhere. The same applies to telemarketers that call a million times over the same thing, simply setup an extension on, and they will talk to a robot all day long. It’s also worth the while to check with scam alert sites like or These sites have a good database of phone numbers and emails used by telemarketers and scammers.

You will get a report of the email or telephone conversation between a robot and the scammer. So go ahead and reduce the amount of time wasted on reading and responding to phishing emails.
