Some sheepish scammers

I'm sure most of you have heard (herd..) about the Japanese poodle scam.

Shell forwarded me this news story and it is pretty funny. Probably not if you've bought a poo-heap*.

------
The scam was uncovered when Japanese moviestar Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.
She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep.

One couple said they became suspicious when they took their "dog" to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves.

----


The worst part is the couple above only became 'suspicious' when they were told it had hooves. As if maybe Poodles do have hooves and they just weren't aware of it.
