Fidel & Son Antonio Both Duped In Phone Pranks (VIDEO)

Fidel Castro's son Antonio recently had his heart broken. It was revealed that his eight-month long online romance with "Claudia", a 27-year-old brunette from Colombia, was in fact Luis Dominguez, a Cuban-born Miamian, who posed as the fictional woman to "shatter the myth of [Cuba's] impenetrable'' security system.

Antonio is not the only gullible Castro to be duped. Fidel himself fell for a prank in 2003 when two Miami disc jockeys (notoriously known for their phone pranks) dialed Fidel and posed as Venezuelan President and Fidel ally Hugo Chavez. Watch for yourself! (For non-spanish speakers, click here for a transcript).
