Liar liar

This has got to be one of the stranger scams I've heard of in a while:
Police say a New Jersey man posed as a female animal doctor, ran an illegal veterinary practice and set up a phony rescue agency that may have duped pet lovers out of thousands of dollars. Vineland police arrested 26-year-old Daniel C. Tyce on Friday and charged him with practicing medicine without a license. He is being held on $10,000 bail.

Police say he ran a business called South Jersey Small Animal Rescue, falsely identifying himself as Dr. Danielle Smith, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school.
I mean, I get the whole thing about pretending to be a fake veterinarian, but why also pretend to be a woman? On second thought, maybe I'd better not ask.
