MANSFIELD, Texas — Two men in Texas were duped into an adoption scheme, only to find out that their twin sons were nothing more than an internet video.

Jason and Byron Miller made an arrangement to adopt Wenona McClellan’s babies.

They had already paid the adoption fee, and they were told the twins were due any day now.

But then, McClellan canceled a doctor’s appointment Monday and vanished.

The sonogram of the twins turned out to be a video she had found online. She was never pregnant at all.

Now the Millers are stuck with a pair of cribs, a fully decorated nursery, an empty bank account and no babies.

There’s still no sign of Wenona McClellan.
