We investigate a version of noncommutative QED where the interaction term, although natural, breaks the spin-statistics connection. We calculate e(-) + e(-) -> e(-) + e(-) and gamma + e(-) -> gamma + e(-) cross-sections in the tree approximation and explicitly display their dependence on theta(mu nu). Remarkably the zero of the elastic e(-) + e(-) -> e(-) + e(-) cross-section at 90 degrees in the center-of-mass system, which is due to Pauli principle, is shifted away as a function of theta(mu nu) and energy.
