Like most humans out there, I receive phishing emails on a daily basis. One day, I don’t actually remember when, I decided that I had wasted enough time deleting phishing emails from my inbox. It was time to fight back! I wanted to waste the time of the phishers for once instead…
Full disclosure; this wasn’t actually my first response to a phisher, it’s just one of the oldest I could find in my sent mail box. I purged my emails a couple of times over the years for one reason or another, so lost my oldest ones.
