Beware the conmen and scammers who congregate around the Olympics, like flies around shit.
Police in southern China have arrested a man for running a fake Beijing 2008 Olympics website, that scammed people by running bogus contests.
Computer engineer Liao Peigui made $53K after persuading "winners" to first transfer a deposit equal to 10-20% of the promised prize money into a bank account that he owned.
Liao had "cloned" the official website of the Beijing Olympic organising committee, known as BOCOG; thus it appeared genuine to the unsuspecting.
Scamming is endemic on the web, as this site demonstrates www.stupidpunts.net
