While usually pretty lucky, Fred had once again run into "Cut-my-own-throat" Dabney. This time he was at a gas station on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Fred was just trying to duck into a restroom to hide when he heard, "Hey, buddy!" and felt an arm descend onto his shoulders.

Fred rolled his eyes. "What?!"

"Hey, no need to get all dramatic, Freddy, my boy," Dabney said, "I just want to talk to you."

"Uh, huh," Fred replied. "And how much is it going to cost me?"

"Ha ha! That's a great one," Dabney answered. "But since you brought it up, I did just inherit a radio station that I'm looking to sell. It's in an up-and-coming suburb of Lincoln, Nebraska, and it would be perfect for you."

"Dabney, I know nothing about the radio business. How could it be perfect for me?"

"With modernization, you don't need to know anything. Just flip a switch and go. And," Dabney continued, "it's perfect for you because it's a mere $50,000."

Fred's eyes got wide. "But... "

"Here," Dabney interrupted him, "look at this picture of the place. It was built in 1998, went on the air in 1999, and just had a major overhaul. It's top of the line."

Despite himself, Fred was curious and took the picture for a closer look at the station. The call letters were clearly visible. "WHAT is the call sign?"

Dabney laughed, "I knew you'd get a kick out of that! Yep, the call letters are W-H-A-T, but you can request a change from the FCC if you want. Here's the title. See? It's all legit."

Fred didn't even bother looking at the document. He knew it was fake. "Get out of here, Dabney," he said. "I don't want your phony radio station."

How did Fred know the station was a fake?
