I find this episode hilarious considering Australia's own terroristic and authoritarian behaviors during the whole COVID mess.

How desperate for love are these people that they ignore the red flags? He suspected it was a scam but still kept in contact with the fake woman and sent money! Hate to think how much it cost the AFP in wages and time trying to save this fool!

Sorry but this episode is ridiculous.. attempting to make selling Netflix logins sinister and scary.. having the FBI travel to AUS participate in the arrest of a kid who bought username and passwords and built a system to check them against Netflix accounts..
