Yes it's ironic that both stories appeared on the same day!

If anyone can think of any follow up stories (baiting or otherwise) then I think it's worth giving BBC Radio 5 Live a call, they would feature something like that I reckon.

Yes the romance scam format looks depressingly familiar Sad

I still think that we could potentially piggyback our baiting efforts on the back of this, we need more awareness and more baiters!

Send the bbc your audio and links to great baits!

From the OP´s article-

Chief executive Dr Bernard Herdan said: "Fraud, of any value, is a serious crime that devastates lives and often funds more organised crime like drug smuggling and people trafficking.

My bolding.

@Windypops- I think you´re right, lambs to the slaughter unless there´s a massive education to the dangers of on-line fraud, particularly with on-line job offers.

@firehouse5- What I most liked about that article was that the lady was quite honest about having been taken for a ride.
Let´s hope it serves to educate internet users.

In the end, with bogus stories of import tax, export duty and travel costs, supported by faked invoices and worthless promissory notes, "Bradford" managed to fleece Brenda for nearly £57,000.


Just imagine a lad with that sort of money, will he have retired?

I think Brenda was very brave to admit her losses.

Nope. There are lads out there who have earned much, much more and they're still scamming away.

Last week in Real Life I had to attend a workshop in London discussing the urgent need to to flood London with WiFi. One of the arguments was that it would help with "Digital Inclusion". Estimated 10 million people in UK do not have access to the Internet. I asked who this was aimed at. It is the Elderly (potential victims), the lonely (more potential victims), the poor (need I say it?) and so on. The problem seems to be that these classes of victim - er I mean people, are missing out on the savings to be made by shopping on-line, by paying utilities bills online and missing out on sites like facebook. An example was given of an elderly lady, widowed, with no family or friends to visit, who is housebound and lonely. she would benefit from being able to go on to Facebook or similar sites.

I mentioned the issue of her being a classic victim of fraud and was told it was very unlikely that would happen.

And she was interviewed on the local BBC TV news at lunchtime. The romance scam has had a lot of useful coverage today.

Great that there's so much coverage. I still think that a good follow up would be the baiting element.

I don't see how either crime needs external funding.
Drugs generate huge profits, and moving any product round the world costs relatively little.
And I thought that people being trafficked paid for the service. Either up front or being used for cheap/slave labour on arrival.

What exactly does this so called champion intend to do about the people who have NO Interest in going online ?

After all you can lead a horse to water, seems to me to be another do-gooder full of ideas and good intentions fighting a cause that is impossible to fulfill. !

I have seen the link. They are different kinds of online frauds and 419 is just a small part of that. I think phising scams is the biggest problem facing the internet today

Brenda was also in the Daily Mail in the UK yesterday. Possibly that is how the BBC picked up on it.

Just found the link :

2nd edit to add : didn't like the tone of comments on the Mail thread so I've made one of my own.
