Thanks for the heads up, what will the scum think of next?

When they identify them the police should make them known to the relevant servicemen so that they can seek recompense!

That's a bit of a silly idea, isn't it? Things like this happen - there were similar instances with fake American service people emailing from Iraq.

Criminals aren't going to toe the morality line - if they did they wouldn't be criminals.

criminals are criminals because they do not fear either being caught or the reprecussions of such.

(I did say 'up to a point'...)

I wasn't particularly thinking of monetary recompense.

I was aware of that, hence my response.
