Cruel Facebook hoax ends marriage

A married man who drove more than 600km to see a woman he met on Facebook has been the victim of a hoax by rival football supporters.

Manchester United fan, Stuart Slann, spent nine hours in his car travelling to meet "Emma", who he had been sharing suggestive emails with.

Believing he was about to enjoy their first night of romance together, Stuart, 39, finally arrived at a remote Scottish farm where he waited for the encounter.

After three hours sitting in his car with "Emma" nowhere in sight, a phone call soon revealed the cruel hoax.

He was surprised to hear the voice of a man with a Liverpool accent.

"Hello Stuart, do you remember us?," they asked.

"It's them Scouse lads who threw you in the pool, you've been framed."

Last year he fell out with the two Liverpool supporters who were staying in the same holiday hotel in Mexico .

They argued about whose football team was better: Manchester United or Liverpool.

To add to the elaborate hoax the men put a recorded phone conversation between them and Stuart on the internet.

It resulted in Stuart's wife Louise finding out about his potential fling on Facebook and she later left him.
