Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

According to reports on Reuters, a 37 year old man from the UK has been arrested in the US after he travelled to Ohio, hoping to marry a 15 year old girl he had met over the Internet. According to police, Ian Waddup, from Newcastle upon Tyne, who has a history of sex offences against children, was arrested on Tuesday after they had been alerted to his plans by Interpol. Waddup has been charged with interfering with the custody of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a child. He has been remanded in custody until he goes to court on 4 March. Bail of $20,000 was set. Ohio police said Waddup had first made contact with the girl over the Internet some 18 months ago, when she was only 14 years old. The contact first took place in a Web site chat room. ®
