A Russian company is doing brisk business creating elaborate excuses for men and women who are trying to cover up their indiscretions. The company, Alibi, will arrange a a wide variety of intricate plots to help their clients, from helping a wife or husband cover up an affair to creating fake weddings for women who need to satisfy their family. Although the firm charges between $500 and $1000 for each alibi, director Dmitri Petrov claims that he and his partners are only in this for the fun and excitement of the game. Surprisingly, the majority of his clients are women who need to cover up an affair. "It’s not a one-night stand alibi they usually want," says Petrov, "but a full-blown week in Turkey.” (BBC)
