The Married man who drove 400 miles to meet a Facebook woman... only to discover it was a hoax set up by rival football fans
A married Manchester United supporter drove 400 miles for what he thought was going to be an affair with a woman he had chatted to on the internet - only to discover it was a hoax set up by two Liverpool fans he had met on holidays. Stuart Slann, 39, from Sheffield, made the trip to a remote farm in Scotland to meet a woman he had been flirting with online for weeks. But when he arrived at the house 'Emma' was nowhere to be seen. Three hours later the pranksters called him and confessed it was all a trick. They taped the conversation and put it onto video-sharing website YouTube and Facebook accompanied by an embarrassing photo.
Mr Slann's wife, Louise, 32, then discovered that he had intended to have an affair and ended their marriage. He had met the two unnamed Liverpudlians during a holiday in Cancun, Mexico. The three spent the time arguing about their teams who are bitter North-West rivals.
On one occasion, Mr Slann was thrown into a pool. When the Liverpool fans returned to the UK they came up with the plan to humiliate him by setting up a false Facebook account pretending to be a Scottish woman called Emma. He'd been chatting to this girl on Facebook for about a month or so. On the night she asked him to go to Scotland he was on the road for about nine hours. And then when he got to this remote farm she sent him a text to say she was still in work. Not only had he driven for nine hours, but he had to wait for about another three and a half hours for her to finish work.

She was charged with illegal access onto a computer and manipulating electronic data. If convicted, she could face a prison term of up to five years or a fine up to $5,000.
The man who was attacked with sulphuric acid for engaging in a relationship with a married woman he met online

When her husband and family found out, they got Ms Khatoon, 24, to lure the victim out of his flat, where concentrated sulphuric acid was poured over his head. He was left with 47 percent burns. The woman's brother, Mohammed Vakas, later admitted pouring the acid on Mr Akram, during a taped police van conversation with cousin and fellow conspirator Mohammed Adeel.

She was on the phone with the unsuspecting victim who was telling her his whereabouts. The attackers are now facing a life sentence.

Amy Taylor, 28, caught husband David Pollard, 40, having sex with an animated prostitute. The couple, who met in an Internet chatroom in 2003, are now separated.Second Life allows users to create alter egos known as "avatars" and interact with other players, forming relationships, holding down jobs and trading products and services for a virtual currency convertible into real life dollars. The couple's real-life wedding in 2005 was eclipsed by a fairy tale ceremony held within Second Life. But Taylor had subsequently hired an online private detective to track his activities: "He never did anything in real life, but I had my suspicions about what he was doing in Second Life." Pollard admitted having an online relationship with a "girl in America" but denied wrongdoing. "We weren't even having cyber sex or anything like that, we were just chatting and hanging out together." Taylor is now in a new relationship with a man she met in the online roleplaying game World of Warcraft.

The pair had been married at Disney World, no less, with France's husband dressed as Prince Charming, and his new bride as Sleeping Beauty. There was like an album of 200 pictures there. Their whole wedding. She had grown suspicious when her husband began taking frequent business trips, even leaving the day the couple's newborn son came home from the hospital. Once, she found his passport at home when he was supposed to be in China for business. She once caught her husband with another woman in a hotel so a girlfriend recommended checking the woman's Facebook page, where France found further evidence of the relationship and confronted her husband once more.She claims he promised he would not go through with the wedding – but it wasn't until she saw that he had, that she finally began divorce proceedings. Her husband took her children and left her without an explanation. She has not seen her sons since, who are now living with their father and his new wife in Florida. Ironically, the only glimpses of her sons now come from the Facebook page where she found his new wedding pictures.
