Spoof sites abound on the web, from honey pots for paedophiles and dissidents run by Gubments to "phishing" by the corrupt and greedy - all left as bait for the credulous. This one is Gold Standard. A1, copper bottomed at Lloyds, 5 star, Blue Riband ...
It was therefore a surprise to see that Famous for 15 Megapixels and Johnny Void have fallen for the wildest spoof yet. Hook, Line, Sinker (HSL) for the comically titled The National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit (NECTU).
Just look at their headline pics (lifted above) - see the clowns with Plod ? OK so it's difficult to separate Plods from clowns - even professional ones. Inverted US Stars and Stripes ...C'mon you Guys!
This brilliantly Orwellian sounding site not only claims to forms part of the "national policing response to domestic extremism" (WTF?), but forms a a total ALPHABET SOUP together with the National Coordinator for Domestic Extremism (NCDE), the National Public Order Intelligence Unit (NPOIU) and the National Domestic Extremism Team (NDET) and as if that wasn't enough they report ... to ... to the Association of Chief Police Officers Terrorism and Allied Matters – ACPO(TAM).... yeah, yeah, sounds rilly rilly OFFICIAL Guys.(ROFALOL)
Good spoof , guys , it looks professional, slick , smart but - The National Fucking Extremism Tactical Coordination Fucking Unit .... even Plod won't fall for that!
Take a look around this site for some more good laughs...Just look at Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales...... yeah, yeah, and the Planet Zog.
Links to this website
You have to ask permission and receive approval from NETCU to link to this website. Requests should be made in writing to NETCU, PO Box 525, Huntingdon, PE29 9AL..... (ROFALOL) Good one that guys snuck away like that ... You need our permission to let people know you exist !!!! Ho.Ho.
The real kicker is however - and this broke us up down here at Patel Towers ...
Freedom of information
NETCU is not a public authority as defined by Schedule 1 of the FOIA. Therefore there are no obligations on NETCU to disclose information under the Act.
But the best clue is that if you click on these logos (try it here) on the Home Page you get a link to a real hard core Kiddie Porn portal.
They even have a wonderful spoof Glossary
The term 'e-crime' is used to describe computer-based crime and criminal activity, such as hacking, identity theft, the use of websites to incite or promote criminal activity, and so on.
Producing spoof sites like this is no crime, sure makes for a fun time on surfin' the web.
Move along. Nuthin' to see, some folks have serious work to do... Hey and DON'T link to it.OK? ... click on the logo here however.
