Dear Paulo,

It takes any layman, not to mention seasoned journalists, only a couple of minutes to google Daniel Krugel (perhaps add the word "fraud" in the search) in order to realise that all is not as claimed. Surely the British Press would have investigated this individual before referring to him as a body locator "supreme"??
