But I think they expect either no response, or data that is obviously
garbage (Bart Simpson, SSN 123-45-6789).
I'm talking about feeding them bogus names that look real.
If I were to say Name= Bill Miller, SSN 287-32-4525, Would you think it
was made up? If a phisher tried to use it, it (I hope for Mr. Miller's
sake), it would bounce. If a guy has 20 dud applications, somebody
might notice. I don't know. Maybe I'm dreaming.
I like an idea that Mark had to automate the feeding of junk data with
an background process. Trouble is it would have to (usually) go to a
WEB form and parse it to post data back. Probably not worth the
