The drabble challenge is a weekly challenge , hosted by Aheila on her blog : http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com  A reminder how it works : read the prompt and find your angle ; write a drabble (100 word story , give or take 5 words) ; post a direct link to the drabble in your comments .

Name and Shame campaigns/websites are popping up all over the world , in an effort to expose that person , group or business who are guilty of conning and cheating ; swindling and scamming or deceiving and duping the public .

So if you have ever been a victim and suffered at the hands of dodgy dudes , unscrupulous business dealers or dishonest individuals ,  there's something you can do about it .

This campaign is used to discourage anti-social and criminal activities by publishing the names of those involved and has even been extended to NGO's and governmental bodies .

Ever heard of cyber~vigilantes ?

    Quite topical! A close friend of mine otherwise very astute fell a victim to one such racket.

    You do have to be careful! And if something sounds too good to be true….
    Great idea for the prompt, M!!
