Phishing and Spammers

I would appreciate hearing a little feedback on this idea.

It strikes me that phishers and spammers have a vulnerability that we have
not yet exploited. They collect information, granted the returns are small
but since email is cheap they send out tons and those tons net them a
profitable return.

Why not encourage everyone to reply to phishers and spammers with fake
information? Get a spam, order it using a fake name and credit information.
Get a phishing mail, go login to change your ebay/paypal password with fake
credentials.

GIGO, you know? I mean if they are getting a 1% or 2% return then if the
same ratio were to respond with bad information it would make a lot of work
for the folks profitting from these activities.
