Missing Episode hoaxers now liable to prosecution
03/02/2011 07:07 GMT

The South Australian police would like to talk to people who commit fraud by pretending to recover missing episodes of Doctor Who

There have been two known hoaxes about alleged recoveries of Doctor Who missing episodes in the last month alone. These have been occurring since the 1980s; or in other words as long as it has been widely known that episodes are missing. These have increased in frequency over the last few years, with hoaxers presuming they are safe to anonymously cause mischief online without repercussion. However, this is a false sense of security;

We've just had a very interesting briefing by the Electronic Crime Section. They're aware of the situation and their counterparts are keen to prosecute. While they can follow this at IP level, they don't have the man power to put into the project with bank fraud and Nigerian scams taking precedence. However they are open to fans tracking and reporting these incidents, as they will then be able to present this as additional evidence in court.

Hoaxers are stupid attention seekers and don't realize when they cross the line from trolling. We look forward to the first charges being laid, followed by a successful prosecution.

As part of their ongoing investigations, the police wish to hear from any fans with demonstrable financial loss.
