Schoolboys lured on Facebook with sex for sale

A SEX syndicate is using Facebook to attract young customers.

A man was shocked to find his 16-year-old brother had sought their services via the social network, Sin Chew Daily reported.

The man, known only as Li, told the daily that he spotted his brother at a hotel in Klang during school hours while he was having a business meeting at the location recently.

Li said his brother told him that more than half of his classmates had sought the service, which costs between RM100 and RM140.

“He said if they want to spend a night with the prostitute, they have to pay RM360,” adding that the website had the photo and price for every prostitute.

Cell phone thief posts photo of himself on victim's Facebook page

Henry County investigators looking for a man suspected of breaking into a car got some unexpected help when the alleged thief inadvertently posted a photo of himself on his victim's Facebook page.

The victim's vehicle was broken into on Sept. 26 at East Lake Academy daycare in McDonough and her purse was taken, according to Henry police Major Jason Bolton.

"The suspect apparently took a picture of himself on the victim's phone, and due to her settings, it automatically uploaded to her Facebook page," Bolton said.

Death Of Steve Jobs And The Great Facebook iPad Scam

As Facebook users share links from news sites about Steve Jobs and the announcement of his death, scammers are tricking users into going to survey sites in hopes of a free iPad.

Scammers have jumped on the news of Apple founder Steve Jobs' death to push forward more survey scams on Facebook. Security researchers warned more are probably on the way.

In the latest scam, Facebook users are told that a company—not Apple—is giving away 50 iPads in memory of Steve Jobs, Sophos researchers posted Oct. 6 on the Naked Security blog. The ghoulish scam appears on the user's Facebook Wall with a picture of the former Apple CEO.

The post is deceptively simple, titled, "R.I.P. Steve Jobs," and the accompanying URL is a shortened link from Bit.ly with "restinpeace-steve-jobs." Users clicking on the link are automatically directed to a survey site, which is required before qualifying for the free offer. This particular link appeared about two hours after news of his death broke in the evening of Oct. 5. Since then, the post had tricked more than 25,669 people from 100 countries to click through to the bogus survey site, according to Bit.ly's analytics page.

Facebook Comment Costs A Retiree RM100,000

A retiree has been ordered by a High Court here to pay a total of RM100,000 in damages and costs to a private automotive technology training centre where his son had studied over three defamatory postings on Facebook.

Justice Varghese George Varughese ordered Leong Yook Kong (pic), 64, to pay DeSpark Auto (Penang) Sdn Bhd RM60,000 in general damages, RM15,000 in aggravated damages and RM25,000 in costs.

He also granted the centre an injunction restraining Leong from further publishing, or causing to be published, any material in the nature of the three defamatory postings, or of similar purport or effect, in any media or howsoever.

The centre had sued Leong for defamation over three comments that the latter posted on the social networking website in November and December last year, accusing the centre of criminal and inappropriate activities.

Varughese said that in cases of libel, the burden of proof was on the plaintiff to show that the words referred to the plaintiff, that the words were published by the defendant, and that the words were capable of or had tendency to bear a defamatory meaning.

Varughese said he had examined the exact words in the three postings and found that they had allegations of fraud, criminal element, and dishonest or corrupt practice.

The judge said Leong's grouses arose when his son failed the London-based City & Guilds examination for his diploma in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair, and he "went on a warpath" against the centre.

He said Leong had built up his case based on three areas of grouses that irked him – that the centre was not incorporated, that it had pre-dated and post-dated its students' portfolios, and the high failure rate of the City & Guilds exam among its students.
