These are names of two of my suspects today, one was guilty:

Xiang Amezcua
Xiao Amezcua.

I stopped myself just in time to avoid the FA. Slow down, read carefully.

Yeah, Shanghai is quite the place for that. Though today in London I had an Olivia and an Olive in one of my cases.

I am based in Shanghai, so I have that problem all the time. I usually double check their alibi before accusing. It shows under their names either on the main menu or when the PE matches up :)

Name? check
Alibi? check

It would be REALLY unlucky to get a similar name with the same alibi as well.

Beware of cases with Fu and Fu Hsi. Those 3 letters can make a difference between having to cough up a million dollar or not.

I always go to accuse from the tracker, that way I know for sure I'm clicking on the right person. But, like Cathy, I always pause to make sure the alibi says "fake" before I accuse just as an extra precaution.

Thank you, again, Yeti, for the wonderful Sleuth tracker. :)

Ha! I have encountered many of this in Shanghai. Really tricky.

Sindy I accuse from the notes so well. Our from the pe page where you can easily see the alibis.

I'm sure that has saved me many an FA. And lots of money.

I think all of my FAs have been due to name similarities. With Yeti's tracker I now no longer tap on the suspect from the list above, but rather from the boxes below. That way at least I can blame him if I mess up. :D
