Internet Security Threat Report 2014

An Argentinean Web designer is cashing in on perfidious surfers with a site that will provide convincing cover stories for any romantic double-dealings.

Raul Tello came up with the idea while four of his female friends were cheating on their husbands and needed plausible excuses for those naughty weekends away.

His new site, Amorios.com, will provide clients with invitations to conferences, confirmation of attendance, plane tickets and invitations to follow-up conferences, The Guardian reports. He will also take phone calls from suspicious spouses and pass messages onto the disloyal partner.

In the first 60 days of trading, Tello has taken £25,000 in revenue, signing up 300 clients. He says that he can't take more than 1000 people onto his books before it would get too complicated to keep all the various stories straight.

Despite the slightly dubious moral ground of his enterprise, Tello is unrepentant. "People who are unfaithful will be so with or without Amorios," he says, quite reasonably. "I am providing an excuse, nothing more."

The business is doing so well that he is thinking of setting up regional offices in Peru and Uraguay. ®
