Dear all,

I am writing from 'Real Story with Fiona Bruce', a weekly current affairs programme broadcast nationally on Mondays at 7.30pm on BBC One (

We are making a half hour programme dealing programme about some of the issues surrounding West African fraud. We would like to get in contact with anyone based in the UK whose life has been touched by computer fraud and identity theft. Of course the nature of this sort of crime can make it a difficult subject to discuss, so we are looking to tackle it with the utmost sensitivity and discretion.

In trying to better understand the emotional impact of computer crime, we hope it will help make the world a little wiser to the dangers of '419' emails, lottery scams and data theft.

If you think you might be available for a short phone chat, please call me on my desk phone from 10am to 6pm on 0161 2443897. If you would prefer to communicate by email, please contact me on

As yet we have no firm transmission date for the programme but the likelihood is that it will be broadcast in June.

For obvious reasons, this forum will no doubt be hosting some of the more skeptical net users out there, so if you are in doubt, please contact the BBC Manchester switchboard on 0161 200 2020 and ask to speak to James Ballardie on Real Story. The BBC Manchester switchboard number is also available on its website

Best regards,

James Ballardie
