      I was (possibly still am) a member on there.

      I think the guy who launched the site has done a book deal publishing the better stories.

      He was also a master of photo shop and did a very funny story of when he fooled them into thinking a hamster had eaten a trophy or similar.

      On the news last night a lady lost 45K to a scam, supposedly to a GI in Iraq, but thought to have originated in Nigeria.
