Reverse Social Engineering attack

As Information security student its a common learning to be beware of spam emails. As these are associated with phishing attack and there could be fraud perpetuating through this attack mode. However, Instead of ignoring these annoying emails – James Veitch decided to take a stab and interacted with spammer and what transpired is quite hilarious. This however provide an interesting insight of the humans behind these attacks and how even they be gullible to  reverse social engineering tactics.
