I live in the UK and I am wondering if I can get into trouble for ratting a scammer... If I can I will just rat my own VM to do pop-up messages...
Asking similar question but that was in the USA.
I don't believe a scammer would report you. They would get in more trouble.
AussieScamBuster It depends, a lot of tech scammers look like completely legit companies. The chances of you getting in legal trouble for ratting a scammer are pretty low. Technically it is illegal.
memes Correction, they try to seem legit.
To make a long story short, yes, but you won't. Scammers don't have any way to report you without getting caught themselves.
And since scamming is way more illegal than RATTing the authorities won't care as much about you as they do the scammer. Just don't RAT innocent people, that is how people end up being arrested.
