Scambaiting Gets Comical; Internet Scammers All Dressed Up 178

Nurse Nasty writes "Scambaiting is a fun and relaxing full-contact email sport. It's all about baiting Internet and email scammers into exposing themselves and sharing that humiliation with the entire world. Recently I baited four different groups of Internet scammers into being comic book action super-heroes, and then giving them their own 10-page graphic novel. It's a bit of fun and eduction through entertainment." (Warning: The comic contains a bit of naughty language.)

Hospitals may also provide that same amount of communication if your faculty/staff can help explain the program to someone in the office of IT/CSO @ the hospital. Many of those organizations are bogged down with HIPAA implementation right now and are looking to address these security issues.
