They say you can find almost anything on the internet, and we've found that it's apparently true: You can hire your own hitman!

Wait. Is this true? Is this legal?
According to the website, it is "100% HIPPA compliant with the
HITMAN INFORMATION PRIVACY & PROTECTION ACT of 1964."
Well, in that case.....
Yes, it's a joke website.
Some of the "referrals" on the site are hilarious!
Caught my husband cheating with the babysitter and resolved after a free public relations consultation. I'm single again and looking to mingle. Thanks Guido!
My schedule is too busy to get my hands dirty, so I consulted with RAH and they handled my public relations issue for me. Gracias, RAH!
Guido and his public relations crew were able to resolve a five year dispute in a matter of days. Highly recommended!
