Brad bin Pitt

Scheme of the century. A Jordanian man uses Brad Pitt's photo on a fake labour card and nearly manages to embezzle Dh82,600:

"TQ had called himself Ameen Younis, but used a photo he said he found on the internet. The two brothers said they had no idea that the man in the picture was a famous actor. It is not clear how the Arab planned to convince security guards he was the blonde-haired, blue-eyed man in the photo."

Off topic again SD, but did anybody else feel the tremors at 1.30am? Iran was hit by a moderate earthquake and my bed was dancing to its own tune.

I'd have posed as Orlando Bloom myself. Sexier and maybe more believable.

Not a very smart move obviously.
About the earthquake, did not feel it but was told that some sky scrapers along Sheikh Zayed Road were evacuated.

Ameen Younis Pitt was a classic story wasn't it!

Tremors? I can't tell the difference between those caused by quakes in Iran and the constant tremors caused by drilling & piling.
