Message to beware of low-life scammers lurking online

THE internet is a wonderful invention - one that has changed our lives for ever.

And with it has come our ability to source all manner of wonderful things - information which once took an age to research is now there at the fingertips.

But along with this amazing technological revolution comes some very nasty shocks for young players.

Users of the internet are not always squeaky clean like the greater majority of us - there are some who prey on vulnerable people in many ways, and they can cause immense harm.

The real message is beware!

Make sure you know where that email came from. Make sure the source is from someone you trust.

Never, ever trust strangers.

It's just like the message we have been giving our kids for decades - don't talk to strangers.

And yet there are still people who seem to be taken in by these low-life scum; people from the other side of the world in many instances who are hell bent on ruining people's lives for their own financial gain.
