A Michigan woman is headed to prison for trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband… using a fake website called ‘RentAHitman.com’
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 – RentAHitman.com 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 RentAHitman.com. The owner says more than a dozen people have used the site to try and find a real killer.
Her plea agreement has a cap of 108 months in prison, according to FOX2 News. She will be sentenced on Jan. 13, 2022.
