The police have not been able to recommend a prosecution.
The scam goes like this:
A company takes out a newspaper advert, claiming to be able to supply hard
core, imported pornographic videos. The prices are reasonable and people
order, using cheques. After several weeks, the company writes back
explaining that under the present law they are unable to supply the
materials, so they return the money, in the form of a company cheque.
However, few people bother to present the cheques at their bank due to the
name of the company "The Anal Sex and Fetish Perversion Company."
