Online Scam: A Hit Man that Won't Hit A Japanese woman hired a man to do a job, and when he didn't deliver, she called the cops. That would be routine, except she allegedly was hiring a hit man to kill her rival for a lover. She found the hit man through a Web site -- first mistake. She paid 1 million yen, about $9,000. A Japanese newspaper says police went ahead and arrested the hit man/conman. They also arrested the woman.
