    Fake Britain - Dom Littlewood BBC1 9.15am

    Recorded Fake Britain yesterday morning sat down and watched it last night.
    To say forging goods has hit new heights would be putting it mildly !!

    If you were ever worried about buying off sites wondering what you might get
    then dont watch these programmes as you will be shocked at the lengths the
    forgers are going to now - mostly in china.

    Worth watching for tips on how not to get caught out when looking for a bargain.
    Should be on iplayer this week

    Well worth watching believe me !!
    the programmes are on all this week.

    I saw that, what a fab idea to give all the confiscated clothes to a homeless shelter, they thought all their christmasses had come at once.

    Caught the second episode yesterday about fake money,

    Have to say it was pretty damn worrying as - Dom found that there are now cases of chip & pin boxes coming straight from the factories which have built in data recording devices which basically pinch your pin & card details.

    They also raided a fortress like flat where a guy was knocking out fake bank cards at a rate you would not believe - it does not give you confidence in the whole system. Makes you want to go back to using cash (assuming someone has not passed fake coins or notes onto you - including the banks !! ) and destroying your bank cards.

    Worth noting any wrongful withdrawals from your accounts are not dealt with by the police but by your bank so
    they are judge and jury over giving you compensation if you have a card cloned and some are currently denying that cards have been cloned - thus basically saying its your own fault and not paying out - madness

    I am glad I don't get up this early.

    This programme sounds scary.

    Sound I go back to bed before I am targeted by scammers:-D

    It really scared me showing the chargers for things like nintendo ds. We have got a few off ebay and now i think i will always pay more to get original products. To think your kids could die. Dreadful. Some of them werent even fused.

    Could we bring in a law that any person that has been invited to live in Britain, commits an offence that carries a prison sentence WILL be deported with no appeal. This should include illegal entry. If this is known befor the offence is committed they have no argument!

    can we also bring a law against resurrecting 4 year old threads

    I put the series on record since I never wake up on time for it
    The range of things which are faked is crazy.

    What next? Fake dog poo?

    I just wish there was a different presenter. His voice sounds as if he is aiming the programme at 6 year olds.

    Don't know if you found the right site. You know we don't make the laws right?
