Government should be doing more to stop online fraud
Amen to that BBC News - UK 'losing fight' against internet crime, warn MPs No good our elected representatives warning about it it's them directing policy. Our elected representatives at both Westminster and in Europe should be bringing in effective policies that direct the various 'Agencies' to go get these geezers and punish them with some suitably high profile prosecutions that actually deter others from having a go.
