E. Andersson and Engholm informed the concom for the 1981 Regncon in Borås that a Canadian fan named Bob Weber might be attending. In fact, the fan was a friend of E. Andersson's who could speak English with only a little accent. The hoax ran for the duration of the con until Weber/J. L. Andersson outed himself during a speech at closing ceremonies.
Weber's name was a misspelling of actual fan Bob Webber.
