Here's a site that does something similar http://www.419eater.com/ . 
This site is targeted at 419 scammers out of Africa.  I don't know
exactly how much good their work does, but it's pretty funny sometimes.

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

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.
