Woman Tries To Hire Assassin On Website Called RentAHitman.Com

A Michigan woman is headed to prison for trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband – using a fake website called ‘’

52-year-old Wendy Wein found the site and filled out a ‘service request’, claiming that her ex had stolen money.

There’s just one problem – is an obvious parody site, complete with a merch store and claims like “100% compliant with the Hitman Information Privacy & Protection Act of 1964.”

When the owner of the site got Wein’s message, he immediately alerted police, who set up a sting operation. She pleaded guilty earlier this month and will be sentenced in January.

Wein isn’t the first person to be fooled by – the owner says more than a dozen people have used the site to try and find a real killer.

Should be allowed to exist – even if it’s a fake? Have you ever been fooled by a bogus website?
