SnapMail would have saved Sisters beaten up by Scumbags they met on Facebook

Sisters Amy, 21 and Nicole Rice, 19, from Dublin, Ireland suffered an horrendous ordeal at the hands of a couple of Scumbags they had met a few weeks previously on Facebook.  When you read what happened you can see how the SnapMail app could have prevented this happening.

They met the two men, aged 25 and 30, at a bus stop and arrived at the men’s apartment shortly after 7.30pm. Soon after, Amy said, one of the men, started “acting weird”.

“They started to get aggressive and my sister got up to leave…and one of them pulled her hair, pushed her to the ground and started kicking her in the head.”  Amy attempted to intervene to save her younger sister but the other man started to beat her in a frenzied attack.

“They tied us up with rags and put them on our mouths and just kept laughing and laughing as they beat us up,” Amy said.  The sisters said the men asked them to ring “someone with money to pay a ransom” which would set them free.

But when the sisters said they didn’t have any money in their family, they were beaten further.

“Nicole made a run to the corridor outside and fell on the stairs trying to get away and passed out at the bottom.

“They thought she was dead and started ringing people on the phone and saying they needed to dig holes in the Wicklow mountains as they didn’t know what to do with these girls,” Amy said.

Amy said the last thing she remembered was her sister’s lifeless body lying at the bottom of the stairs before she blacked out.

“I was so scared,” said Amy, “I thought we were going to die, I was full sure they were going to kill us.”

“They eventually let us go at about 3pm and said if we went to the guards they would kill us and our family.”

The sisters, who were covered in blood, ran out of the apartment and flagged down a man who was driving by with two children. He brought them straight to hospital.  The sisters believe they may have been drugged on the night of their ordeal.  The sisters suffered severe head injuries. Amy suffered a suspected fractured jaw and Nicole a broken nose.

It could have been so different if they had the SnapMail app on their mobile phones.  One click and they would have had the photo of the two men stored in their private account on the SnapMail website, regardless of whether their phones were stolen or not.

And if they had subscribed to SnapMail Emergency, the premium version of the app, 5 of their Friends would have been notified of their order within 5 minutes of the trouble starting.

“I’ll tell your mother you are a hooker”, by Matt Dunford

Remember when you were about 6 years of age and you stabbed your kid brother with a pencil or you nicked your best friends pocket money.  Were there any words that put the fear of God in you more than “I’ll tell your mother.”  This was back in the day, of course, when kids actually had a bit of respect for their parents.

Even as 6 year olds, we knew it was a pretty low threat to make to someone, and it was even lower again to follow through on it.

What, then, would you make of a 30 year old threatening to tell an ex-girlfriends mother and sister that she was a hooker?  For the record, the lady in question was not a hooker, but that was a mere detail for the creep behind this.

Step forward Matt Dunford and take a bow.  The brave Matt, from a nice part of London, was ditched by the very attractive Amanda Branco, a fitness instructor from Brazil, and rather than take it like a man, he decided to embark on an ungentlemanly harassment and stalking campaign.  By the way, Matt is also known as ‘Britain’s Vainest Man’, although he was clearly punching above his weight with Amanda.

Matt’s stalking and harassment was not limited to bombarding her with calls, texts and e-mails.  Oh no, the brave Matt went as low as it is possible for a man to go and he designed a website pretending to claim that Amanda was a hooker.  He then sent the website to Amanda’s mother and sister in Brazil, after she failed to pay him £5,000 blackmail money.  Classy, eh?

Thankfully, unlike many other cases of stalking and harassment, this one has a happy ending as Dunford was found guilty at Hammersmith Magistrates Court in February and will be sentenced shortly.

Make sure to keep the free SnapMail app handy if you’re a victim of stalking.  You never know when you might need it.
