I would like to get scammed via email to have some fun. How can I achieve this? (I have looked online and have found no answers only how to not get scammed.)

    I suggest you Google for "honeypot" which is the official name for this

  • Turn off spam filters, registered as many "stranger" sites as possible, you will get the scam mail(s) in no time.

  • Enter random emails on mailinator.com, answer those emails from your account. Scammers don't record who they sent emails, and if you send email from them asking for information, the game is on.

    @Adonalsium He has a FAQ on his Twitch.tv page. He mostly gets submissions but also clicks sketchy ads and intentionally misspells popular websites and gets the call center phone numbers off of the popups he gets.

Open your spam folder and just look :)

But seriously you could register a new throw-away email address and then: - Google for popular scam things like viagra, etc and sign up for newsletters. - Email about scam work from home jobs on Craigslist
