Cashing in on spy scandal

Anna Chapman, the Russian agent deported by the US, could make millions by selling her story.

    Although the Russian spies, who were deported from the US for acting as unregistered agents of a foreign country, forfeited their rights to sell their story in the United States before being released from detention, there could be high demand in other countries.

    Anna Chapman, the photogenic red head who has become the face of the spy scandal, is likely to be the focus of a media storm in Russia and the UK, where the public love a good spy story.
