Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post containing the name the scammer is using, his email address, phone number and the emails themselves and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".

Wasting a scammer's time legally and safely is called "scambaiting". If you google that word, you will find sites where you can read scambaits, post up the emails and email addresses of scammers, post up a fake website, read up on how to alert a hosting company that they are hosting a fake website, ask questions and learn all about the hobby of scambaiting.

Re: Boat Rental Scam, Yacht Charter Scam

Unfortunately it is a scam, we received the same e mail and have replyed in a not friendly manner, eaven useless. At least, the scammer will not have a nice dinner thinking about our words.
BTW, great side. Will advise about a other swindler in the Costa del Sol, having scammed quite some people, also us.

Definitely, the more posts there are about a scam, the less the chance someone will fall for it. Thanks!!
