I read the news in today's newspaper 'Indian Express' -- Police on Thursday arrested one Donshung Ruwoner alias Sodi, 27, a resident of Kalina, on charges of duping a 42 year old woman of Rs. 4.67 lakh promising her a business deal. They suspect that a Nigerian gang was involved in the crime. Sodi, a native of Manipur, is a final year B. Com student. Police said the accused had approached the victim through a social networking site after creating fake profile of Americans. We should be careful while working with online sites. What do you think?

I think some individuals who have ill motives in mind are riding with the trend using modern technology to lure others for their own gain. They used networking site as their cover to fool others that they are legit. This is more common now this days so we must always be careful in dealing with this kind of people.

There so many frauds and scams on web now. And those vulnerable to such scams are easily got tempted to try only to find out they are scammed. Anyway, we should really be careful who to deal with and the websites we are joining. Those offering fast and easy money has a high tendency turning out to be a scam.

I feel so sorry for the person who was scammed. Sometimes it is easy to get caught in up in the scheme. The first thing to remember is "if it sounds too good to be true" stay away. I am glad that they caught the scammer. The more people they catch hopefully the more it will deter would be scammers.

It's just another crime in the (very) long list of computer scams & crimes. It's terrible. Those types of people have absolutely no regard for anyone or anything, not even the law. They're the kind of people who would steal candy from a baby. Just the other day I got an email from someone wanting to send me a check to deposit. I forwarded it to a computer crimes government website. I feel sorry for the victim, but you would think that everybody knows by now not to get friendly with people that want anything other than conversation. That's one reason I like mylot. It's kind of a safe place to interact with people without the fear of being scammed (usually).

You cant stop this until you get to know the world...each and everyday we read in newspapers and online about these kinds of frauds...we are the one to give the fraudster a chance to get cheated...so whether its online or the deal is with a known person , you should know the pros and cons before paying the money...first arrest the person who got cheated...then there will no one to blindly fall to the frauds....
