Transcript: Alibis for Sale
This is a partial transcript from "Your World with Neil Cavuto," December 12, 2005, that was edited for clarity.
NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: Say you never made it home from the holiday party and you don't know what to tell your spouse? And let's say you need an alibi.
Well, my next guest may have some ideas and some alibis. Leonard Brin is the president and co-founder of AlibiNetwork.com.
You know what I love about your company? It justifies sneakiness. That's pretty much what it does, huh?
LEONARD BRIN, PRESIDENT & CO-FOUNDER, ALIBI NETWORK: Well, we provide alibis for people involved in extramarital affairs and would like to keep their marriages alive and protect their children. That's basically what we actually do.
CAVUTO: All right.
BRIN: The basic idea is rather simple. We create alibis for our clients who would like to justify their absences.
CAVUTO: All right. Well, what are doing, Leonard, is you're lying for them, right?
BRIN: Well, I wouldn't say lying. We provide, I guess, a set of pretexts that allows...
CAVUTO: You're in variance with the facts. In other words, let's say I was fooling around. You would then make it look like I was in Hong Kong on a business trip, when, in fact, I was just fooling around, right? So my wife is none the wiser?
CAVUTO: That's called lying, by the way.
BRIN: Well, we can go to any extent, as long as it's legal.
CAVUTO: What have you not done? Even a firm like yours must have said, "You know what? That's going too far."
BRIN: Well, I just want to let you know, Neil, that we do turn a lot of clients away. And the reason why we do it is because we review every case individually. And if we feel that we would not be comfortable with providing...
CAVUTO: Like what? What would you turn away?
BRIN: Well, just an example is, we do have a lot of clients that ask us — for some reason or another — for death certificates. And we don't feel comfortable providing those types of services to individuals.
CAVUTO: Or sabotaging someone else. You avoid something that might sabotage either the reputation or the livelihood of someone else.
BRIN: Exactly. We are trying to stay clear of any possible defamation of character or anything that might be similar to it.
CAVUTO: But how do I know? People at home, Leonard, are going to watch us talking and saying, Jeez, you know, I always believed my husband was in Hong Kong, and it could have been Leonard and his hacks there making it look that way.
BRIN: Well, the basic idea of our service — I just want to briefly give you an overview.
Why we decided to come up with this idea was, we took the idea from our European rivals. However, we did an extensive research. And we found out that over 50 percent of all the married couples will, at some point, cheat in their relationships. And that's where, really, our main service is addressed, to those people that are actually calling us because they do want to save their marriage.
CAVUTO: Do you have an alibi limit? In other words, if I use you, do you have a limit on saying, Neil, you have hit your threshold; no more alibis for you?
BRIN: Not really. Not really.
BRIN: As long as both of us are comfortable, and we do have caution, I don't think that there is a limit.
BRIN: As long as it's all legal.
CAVUTO: All right.
BRIN: And it's really easy to join our Web site. It's www.AlibiNetwork.com.
CAVUTO: Leonard, we're out of time. And we would love to do it longer, but that's my alibi.
BRIN: Well, I appreciate your having me here.
CAVUTO: Leonard Brin in Chicago.
