Love in the age of Facebook
It's hard to tell how much of this story
is genuine. Stuart Slann supposedly learned the hard way part of the truth of the old joke that on the internet the men are men, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents. In Stuart's case, Emma, the woman he thought he met on Facebook, was actually two guys playing an elaborate prank on him. Apparently they lured him into driving nine hours to meet Emma in Aberdeen, and then they revealed the truth to him.
And since this is the age of YouTube, the pranksters also created a video
(now widely viewed) to celebrate the humiliation of their victim.
