Two New Jersey men -- Tito Moses, who served time in prison for murder, and Steven Wortman, a retired postal employee -- were caught in a police sting that had them believing reps for the celebrity couple were going to meet them with $150,000 on a New York street corner Tuesday, the New York Post reported.

"They were shocked because they thought they were coming for their payday -- and instead, they got the surprise of their lives," Police Inspector Michael Hines told the newspaper.

The wedding video was on Anthony's laptop computer, which was stolen with his car while he was shooting a music video in Linden, N.J., last October.

Police were tipped to the scam by "Access Hollywood," which got a call from a "Mr. Moses" earlier this month, offering to sell the video for a hefty price, the Post said.

The duo reportedly told police posing as attorneys for Lopez and Anthony they wanted $1 million for the video, but the phony negotiators got the price down to $150,000.
