|Would you trust this man with your mouth, Miami?|
But this is Miami, quite possibly the most fraudulent city in the country. Don't believe us? Check out these seven other examples of South Florida fakery.
7. Fake Businessmen
Whether they are cruising Washington Avenue in their rented Lambos or pumping their Ponzi scheme millions into yet another mansion, South Florida is full of bogus businessmen: Bernie Madoff, Scott Rothstein, Buddy Persaud, Allen Stanford, and, of course, Miami's own Nevin Shapiro.
6. Fake Cops
