Wendt Worth Corgis has personally called AKC Investigations and Inspections Dept. at 1-919-816-3629 and talked w/a gal that did verify that they received a call on this and that the individuals had a description and plate number to the vehicle and has been advised to talk to authorities. She also said anyone of their inspectors would be more then happy to wait for you to call AKC for verification and all AKC inspectors will have a photo ID on them and will patiently wait while you call AKC. Below is the forwarded message I have received.

Hi-I do know this is concerning Ohio-as I received an e-mail from Jack
Norton-of AKC-cautioning that another breeder in my area-North Central
Ohio-was visited by a person claiming to be the AKC compliance inspector.
Since she knew the inspector-she was concerned and called AKC to verify that
this was an AKC inspector. She was told that it was not-and did not permit
entry. No one knows for sure who this person was that is impersonating an
AKC inspector-but it is very suspicious-and may be an AR activist. We don’t
know-and AKC is issuing a warning for this area. They may try it again
elsewhere-so it is a good idea to verify anyone entering your facility. I
forwarded the original message to another Ohio breeder-and it has spread
from Ohio. Still- it could be tried anywhere-so be cautious.
