To me this is actually good news (if true). It suggests the people behind fixing are getting sufficiently desperate.
Umpires can only effect a match by so much, and thats becoming even less with the appeal system now.
Edit: On readthrough, this is all based on a TV sting, so forget my previous comments. In that case it just illustrates some non-international umpires being desperate for some cash. And from the sounds of things the sting itself is very fishy, pretty much entrapment.
Not surprising, and not very difficult, especially if it's done at a level below the international level.
