Yer Gotta Larf 2
Put two news items together and you have a tale. On 1 February 2006 Directgov's newsroom posted an article entitled: "Awareness month aims to stamp out scams" (click title link). On 13 December 2006 BBC News reported the UK Financial Services Authority's finding that phishing scams have increased by 8,000% since last year (CLICK). The moral of this tale? If you want to increase a branch of crime by 8,000%, get HM's incompetent Government to mount a campaign to stamp it out!
