I'm sure there is or was a link to this story elsewhere but my search abilities have failed me, so just for future reference. This is quite possibly the worst way to end it all...

Suicide of internet scam victim

A man died after setting himself on fire when he was cheated in an internet money-laundering scam, an inquest heard.

Leslie Fountain's body was discovered in a field in Fen Ditton, Cambridgeshire, on his 48th birthday, days after he thought he had won $1.2 million in an internet lottery. Mr Fountain, a senior technician at Anglia Polytechnic University, had debts of �25,000 and thought the win would solve all his financial problems. When he realised he had been tricked he became depressed, the inquest at Shire Hall, Cambridge, was told.

Detective Sergeant Alan Page told the inquest that officers found Mr Fountain had been taken in by an internet scam which had been run from Amsterdam and was now being investigated by Interpol.

Now, does anyone still want to apologise for the minor inconvenience and slight chance of mishap that may result from our corresponding with these scum of the earth?

I admit, I was starting to wonder "is forcing them to perminetly brand themselves with a tattoo going too far?" ... now I'm thinking it's not far enough. I never wish harm on anyone without justification and these people... they deserve all the hell they get.

I say this constantly here on the forum, but I do highly praise you baiters! You placed some form of justice when before there was nothing! And not just that, you go beyond just playing a game to actually saving lives by making it harder for innocent people to fall victom will all the alert sites, warnings and more I have seen going up! Praise be to all of you, you are honored by every great thing in this world.

i am a strong beliver in prayer, and although this child is gone, i pray that her family recives comfort in their time of need. i also pray for the skill and ability to make sure the lads get all they deserve.
patience is a virtue, and i like it slow. slow and painfull. dolla choping, safarie, site killing, more safari, i want to do it all. after all i have plenty of time. and if the lads want me to hurry, i just take a few days off.

if a man speaks in the forrest, and noone is around to hear him, AM I STILL WRONG? somthing to listen to
