Now Stuart Slann, 39, has become an unfortunate internet star after a video explaining how he made the trip, and the entire phone conversation have been put on the internet.
During the phone call the lads tell him: "Do you recognise our voices Stuart?
"It's them Scouse lads who threw you in the pool. Do you recognise our Scouse accents?"
Stuart replies: "Yes I do mate."
The mystery Liverpool supporter tells him: "You've been framed", before bursting into laughter.
Stuart met the pads on a holiday in Cancun, Mexico, last November. According to the Telegraph, the three soon started giving it some gob about their rival football teams, and Stuart was subsequently thrown into the swimming pool by the Liverpool fans.
After returning home, they decided to further humiliate their victim, and set up a Facebook page under the name of Emma - a Scottish temptress who began to flirt with the unsuspecting Stuart.
After a month of preliminaries, Emma invited Stuart to her home in Aberdeen, and he duly drove from Sheffield to the remote farm north of the border where he expected to have his evil way with his online girlfriend.
Stuart explained: "I'd been chatting to this girl on Facebook for about a month or so. I really thought she was genuine, and I had no reason to doubt it. On the night she asked me to Scotland I was on the road for about nine hours. And then when I got to this remote farm she sent me a text to say she was still in work.
"That's what made it worse, not only had I driven for nine hours, but I had to wait for about another three and a half hours for her to finish work."
"Then when I got the call to say it was all a hoax I just felt awful.
"If they had asked to drive to Manchester, Leeds or even Liverpool it wouldn't have been so bad and maybe I'd have seen the funny side. But to drag me all the way to Aberdeen was just cruel."
Stuart's wife Louise, 32, discovered the 'affair' last week when the whole sorry tale went public, and their marriage is now over.
