Fake Wedding Defrauds Guests

"A fairy story ended behind bars for a Japanese couple Monday, when they were jailed for staging an elaborate fake royal wedding to defraud guests. Yasuyuki Kitano and Harumi Sakamoto, both in their 40s, invited hundreds of guests, including Japanese celebrities, to a wedding reception in 2003, saying that Kitano was a member of a defunct branch of the imperial family. Guests at Japanese weddings traditionally bring with them gifts of at least 30,000 yen ($260) in cash." Reuters, Yahoo News Link to Article (last visited 9-11-06 NVS)
