    Default Nigerian Fraud...

    OK, which one of you is Steven Day?

    Courtesy of the BBC...

    Stephen Day, from Ipswich, handed over sums of money totalling £12,000 to someone he met online. The woman he thought he was emailing and sending money to for flights and other expenses turned out to be a Nigerian man.

    "It is not easy to admit that you have been subject to this sort of scam. It is almost something that you feel ashamed of.

    "It was totally unprepared to be drawn into what was quite extensive international financial fraud from an internet dating site."

    Parag Bhargava, a founding member of the Association of British Introduction Agencies, called for more stringent checks of dating sites.

    "What we would like is some kind of legislation that suggests that if a person is joining such a site that some sort of verification checks are made about the actual individual."
    So girls, you know what you have to do...

    Show us your Norks!!!

    We've got too many checks on individuals already

    we need more checks on the sites themselves
    It's Deja-vu all over again!

    Yes, we need more legislation please Old New Labour. More checks on individuals. How about say ID cards? And a national DNA database of everyone and a law against the Internet. Perhaps we can curb free speech and expression whilst we are at it.
