At the time, Dog’s literary agent was actually sent the six-figure check which looked very real. The money was delivered to his office via FedEx.
The scam actually started a month earlier when his agent seemingly got an email from the office of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan — the real Deputy Prime Minister of United Arab Emirates — offering to pay Dog the huge fee to speak at an economic empowerment convention for small business owners.
Of course, the catch was that organizers asked for Dog to donate $250,000 back to the organization. The Dog smelled a rat and walked away from the situation. But, you can imagine what would have happened if he sent funds overseas before the check he recieved cleared.
Bottom Line — Don’t Mess With Dog, He Will Find You!!
