Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A businessman faces ten years in a Malaysian jail cell after an attempt to humiliate his estranged wife on a sex Website backfired.

In a bitter quest for revenge, the man borrowed a friend's laptop and logged onto a Singapore site which had sex-for-hire. He tapped in an advert that featured his wife touting her wares online, resulting in the unsuspecting woman, a mother of two, receiving obscene phone calls from interested punters as far away as Brazil and Thailand.

The man was arrested, and under Malaysia's Computer Crimes Act he now faces up to ten years in jail or a maximum fine of 150,000 ringgit ($39,000), Reuters reports.

Malaysian police said the case highlighted a growing trend in Net revenge - in the last month alone they have received four complaints about women's personal details appearing on sex sites. ®
