Fake Facebook Accounts Fooling NFL Prospects

Don’t believe anything about that hottie who just tried to friend you on Facebook. I’ve watched enough sensationalist TV to know it could really be Chris Hansen on the other end. Or, even worse, Scott Pioli.

Fake Facebook Profile

(”It’s a trap!”)

YAHOO SPORTS, which is pretty much leaving CBSSPORTS.COM in the dust these days, talked to a source in NFL personnel who confirmed that it’s actually pretty common for teams to create fake accounts to get access to potential draft picks’ personal lives.

Soccer Player Paycheck Slipped Onto Internet Forums

SOCCER PLAYER’S PAYSLIP SLIPS ONTO INTERNET FORUMS: An English soccer club is wondering how a player’s payslip somehow slipped onto the Internet:

John Arne Riise soccer

The BBC cashes in on news that Liverpool striker John Arne Riise had his paycheck displayed on numerous website forums. And team doesn’t know how it got there.Online visitors were treated to the statement that said Riise took home almost £140,000 - or $280,000 - in monthly wages. It even detailed a £65 deduction for meals.

The pay stub also featured other personal info on Riise, including his home address and insurance policy numbers.

So that’s how socialized health care works - everyone just bills their treatments to the nearest pro midfielder.

Adam Archuleta



Her manager’s reasoned reation to the notes. “It seems that the guy was just angry at hot girls. He could just be an angry guy who has no luck with girls and decided to act in a real dumb way.

The Beacon-News also notes that Edson also called Walcott “white trash” in one email and went on “to write that when Playboy founder Hugh Hefner dies, the women of Playboy will find out they were being used, prosecutors said.

Jennifer Walcott

With newsbreaking skills like that, Edson really belongs in the newspaper business. Non-internet division.Anway, Diaz was cuffed and stuffed by Aurora Police (we know, we’re thinking the same thing) and charged with Cyberstalking. He’s out of the can after posting $20,000 bond.

CORRECTION: Archuleta is married to Walcott.

Actually, I don’t have any lipliner college photos. I suppose they do that sort of thing at the University of Florida, but as an alumnus of the University of Georgia, I wouldn’t know.
