Ho ho ho. We can e-bullshit with the best of them, eh? Perhaps Pedro Ballve could explain how exactly he expects mistrustful Spaniards to spend money on line when Spanish credit cards do not carry explicit protections against fraud.

Anyway, to judge from the reaction -you can read some really hilarious comments on the Spanish newsgroups- Spanish investors are going to be harder to scam than American ones.

By the way, few things in this world are worse than Telepizza's food. Hideously expensive, too. Goes to show Yanks are not the only ones who do what the TV tells them.
