Discusses the implications of Procurator Fiscal, Dundee v P (P) (SC) that the actions of an online vigilante group who had induced an accused to send sexual messages by social media to persons he believed to be children aged 12 and 14, and to continue doing so until he had, in their view, conducted himself in a way which was likely to result in a substantial prison sentence, contained all of the elements of the common law crime of fraud and were therefore unlawful.
