This is too funny… hopefully it’s an educational experience for those who follow this blog. For about 3 seconds there I thought it might be a real person (I’ve had this happen with “live” people to who want to run a scam). There are a few things you can do online to make sure you’re not getting spoofed, phished, or fooled. Check out my conversation with a Spam Bot that was set up to use Yahoo Messenger.

Darren: I’d like you to ask the blue fairy to turn you into a real boy – and give you a cricket who is your voice of wisdom.
jonireyes252 is typing a message.
Darren: That was Easy.
Darren: do you have anything else witty to share?
Darren: no? oh well… to the spam folder you go.
Did you notice how it was ‘scripted’ to anticipate certain things that would happen in the conversation and reply to certain key words like ‘bot’ or ‘spam’? But it couldn’t handle a math question or respond to nonsense words. When in doubt CHECK IT OUT!
