Nightmare' after Facebook prank



A man's life is "unbearable" after prank on Facebook.


A man who was tricked into travelling 400 miles to meet a woman who did not exist has reportedly said the prank made his life "unbearable".



Stuart Slann, 39, drove from his Sheffield home to Aberdeen last month to meet "Emma", whom he met on Facebook, only to find the woman of his dreams had been created by two rival football fans he met on holiday.



Mr Slann said he had received 300 mocking emails a day since the hoaxers posted details of their scam on websites such as YouTube and Facebook. He told the Sheffield Star: "I just can't take it any more, I'm leaving Sheffield and moving to Derby. It's gone way, way beyond a prank. My life is a nightmare at the moment, the abuse is unbearable."


He continued: "Apart from being an idiot, I've not done a lot wrong. It was a good con and I would have been proud of that myself. I thought it would die down in two days but it's carrying on."He told the paper a lot of the negative comments were from people who believed he was a married man, whereas in fact his divorce was finalised last October and his trip to Cancun, Mexico, in November was intended as a celebration of the end of eight years of marriage.



It was there that he met, and bickered with, the unnamed Liverpool fans who masterminded the prank.



After returning from the trip, the men set up a fake Facebook account featuring a Scottish woman called Emma, and exchanged emails and text messages with their target before inviting him to Aberdeen.

A phone call the Manchester United fan received from the two men after he had waited for "Emma" near their arranged rendezvous for several hours was posted on YouTube.

Mr Slann has reportedly been bombarded with interview requests from magazines and television companies since the story of his wild goose chase broke, but as he no longer lives in the marital home, his ex-wife Louise, mother of his four-ear-old son, has been forced to deal with the calls.







Time to 'fessup, come on now.
