Duff Beer Fraud

A woman in Australia was convicted of fraud after ripping off customers on e-bay by purporting to sell Duff Beer.  Duff Beer, for those of you who don't watch the Simpsons, is Homer Simpsons favorite beer.  The woman, of course, did not have any Duff Beer, as it doesn't exist, and simply pocketed the money she received from the gullible Simpsons' fans.  The woman got caught because she pulled a Homer--she listed her correct name, address and e-mail address on her e-bay action forms.  Story here.  [Mark Godsey]
